Re: Adjusting from Water to Land

I've always called it "land sickness" but Wikipedia is way cooler than me: "Sea legs, dock rock, or stillness illness" Illusions of self-motion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As others say its normal. I found that it's effect lessened over the years. It takes more violent motion, or longer time at sea, for the effect to occur nowadays. It it does not last as long either. I rather missed that feeling.
