Little Squall, Saying Goodbye to the Bad Weather..

So I realised that I have not been very forthcoming with my ‘Pic of the Day’ tab, this is for two reasons, the first is that internet speeds/ connections are often intermittent causing upload times to take a long time and impossible in storms. The second is that I’m looking into ways to provide a more structured and better managed, user friendly gallery rather than just a history of pictures/ posts etc. 

Today’s pictures are of a squall (taken yesterday) and the calm and pleasant seas we have currently, also you will notice one of the lifeboats is being lowered, fear not, they are not in trouble but carrying out essential maintenance checks on the boat to ensure it is running correctly and safe to use if required.

A squall is a sudden, sharp increase in wind speed which is usually associated with active weather, such as rain showers, thunderstorms, or heavy snow and we have been experiencing a extraordinary amount this trip here at Gryphon Alpha.
