My homemade meal from last night was a prime example of why I should eat out more often. One, or perhaps more, of the components were probably past their eat-by date and resultant meal, while tasty, didn't do my digestive tract any good at all. All I will say is that I'm glad that my aft head is electric rather than the manual pump type...
I had spoken with Les and Jeremie from Golightly the night before and we'd agreed to sail (or motor) Zanshin to Pigeon Island for the day; I would dive and they would snorkel around the island. Although I was feeling under the weather I really wanted to dive there again and after they'd completed clearing in (they waited over an hour in line, as the store had been closed for 2 days and there were a lot of cruisers clearing in or out on the single computer system) we motored in light winds the 9 miles to Pigeon Island. We anchored close to shore and then loaded the dinghy up with dive and snorkel stuff and I had a nice dive, but I was still a bit cramped and the visibility wasn't as good as the previous visit. Les and Jeremie had a good snorkel as well and we motored back to the anchorage in Deshaies, again with a headwind! Upon anchoring I wasn't feeling well at all and after returning them to the boat I tried to rest and sleep. This continued throughout the afternoon and evening and until the next morning - this case of bad food lasted a long time, usually your tummy gives a massive shout for a couple of hours and then you slowly recuperate but this time it lasted much longer.
