The Sea

It's all part of a Sailors life. Bad weather conditions brought on by typhoons. Gigantic waves crashing on to the upper deck and making life very miserable down below. Making your way to get your scran (food) and trying to traverse your way back to sit down. Trying to get the food in to your mouth while the ship is heaving heavily is a feat on its own. Virtually walking on the bulkhead and at times almost on the deck head instead of the deck. And times watching the flight deck disappearing under water and the gun sponsons taking in water. The ship shuddering and groaning as she shook herself free. And we wondering if she will right herself. Decks roped off, at times ratings not allowed on the upper decks for fear of being swept over board.
