Sorties in the sea off Rome: twin-engined tan...

Basking in the sea is great, but like circus elephants against their chains I avoid the sun. The signalman is always the voice of my mother from when I was a kid: “You can’t take more than one hour in the sun per day.” The gauges are my nose and shoulders. But when you’re bobbing in a trough of a huge wave in the churning aqua-green water you sometimes must think about nil and forget.
