The land-wind not blowing on Monday morning, all idea of sailing was given up for that day.
A question arose in the boat as to whether or not the land-wind was blowing.
After the land-wind was spent, which we had at south-east and south-south-east, the seabreeze came up at east.
The breeze had died away at sunrise; and in the interval before the land-wind should spring up there was almost a dead calm.
The boat continued drifting before the land-wind further and further from the shore, till all hope of reaching it was lost.
It was between eight and nine; the land-wind had died away, and the sea-breeze had not set in—there was not a breath stirring.
With the first of the land-wind in the evening we set sail before it and steered across for Bianca.
The land-wind still blew strong, smelling of the hot earth, albeit mixed with spicy odours.
It is the land-wind blowing down the mountains, where some beast lies dead.
