Away southward lies a black streak on the sky-line and the windsail flickers a little.
There was no suggestion of oppressiveness in the air and a windsail was not necessary to keep the cabin fresh and cool.
The flaps of the windsail hang dead, the sides of the canvas tube have fallen in like the neck of a skinny old man.
If clear decks are wanted, the windsail is about as inconvenient as it is ugly, and that is saying a great deal.
The windsail hangs limp and breathless, and the thermometer stands at 120° Fah.
The sky to the southward is a jet-black mass of clouds, and the windsail is yawing in a strong, cool breeze.
The breeze from the windsail blew some of the snuff out of the box into the eyes of Macallan.
