Music Track - Mendlessohn

In view of the fact that I've been living on a boat for the last week, I thought a little maritime music was in order.  Initially I thought of Calm Sea and a Prosperous Voyage by Mendelssohn.  But it's a little dreary.  Then I thought of Variation number VIII of the Enigma Variations by Elgar which is labelled *** as it was for a mysteroius lady who was on a a voyage at the time.  Elgar used the Calm Sea overture as a link to this.  Then I thought of this, The Fair Melusine, also by Mendelssohn.  I like the bubbling he has in the music.  No doubt the bubbly sound is the movement of the waves and her breathing under water.  She was a mermaid!
