Here at an internet cafe in Key West, just posting a few photos, catching up with “real” life. I don’t particularly want to because that usually means I have to make big girl decisions.
I’ve been working on Mother Cramer (aka our boat, in case I never mentioned it). Yesterday Kat Conway and myself climbed all the way to the top of the mainmast and tarred the heck out of the stays while perched on pretty much a swing. It was pretty crazy cool. And I’m not going to lie, there were moments such as the one where I had to actually get myself from the mast to the swing, dangling precariously feet from me, when I thought “Oh… shit.”
I’m sad that some of my shipmates are missing out on some of the really great moments here refitting Mother Cramer. I honestly think this should be part of the program. Bonding with the crew and focusing on the ship has really brought everyone together in a way not really possible while in the whole “student” mode.
Gotta run, I’ll try to get myself to the internet sometime before Friday, but don’t be surprised if I can’t. After all, I’ll have all the time in world for internet after next week. Right now, I’m just going to enjoy this world I’m living in, for as long as I can.
