Stomache drops again

January 9, 2007

On Kayaks‘ description of the conditions in the Bass Strait (between Australia and Tasmania). Here is the power of words to give you that stomach feeling again.

“Gusts of wind exceeding 60 knots push the seas into a massive undulating 60 foot swells with no clear sense of direction. At one moment, ships are at the crest of the wave, looking over the tops of the others lapping at the sky, visibility hindered by the dense gray sheet of falling rain and clouds. The next moment gazes absorb tremendous 60 foot drop as the boats nudge over the waves crest and plummet into gaping troughs of intense blue-gray water below them.”

(If its not working re-read imagining its dark too).
