The doldrums; an area of windless sea where sailing vessels could be becalmed for days and weeks.

Colloquially; feeling stuck in a project, unable to proceed.

Yes, well - living on an island it should be fairly easy to take a picture of a windless sea and go with something like the original definition. Yes? No. I have, rather, been in the doldrums (second meaning) as the weather has made it impossible for me to proceed.

So - firstly a picture from earlier this year which I think does illustrate what the sea is like in the doldrums;

Ramsey bay

That was one of those March days we had stolen from summer.

This is what our sea has been like for days... good weather to not be on the boat.
