It was one of those Atlantic storms that could come up suddenly. One minute the sea was calm and the sun was warm; the next the wind rose, the sea began to roil as the light was rapidly overtaken by a growing gloom that darkened the surrounding waters.

Even as they watched lightning streaked across the sky, illuminating clouds filled with rain and the horizon disappeared, now one with the growing darkness.

As the sea rose rapidly the waves broke into peaks, their white caps reflecting the green glow of the sky as the roar of thunder grew ever closer.
