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.

Hate those.

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.

Great pics! Thanks for sharing. Glad you’re having a wonderful time, querida. When do you get back, anyways? (Just curious.)

besos,

Hola, chica! Clearly, Mel and I were talking about you, which is why we’re both posting …

Amazing photos for sure. Love the portraits of the locals and your stories of their kindness. It’s nice to think of people that way since here in the states we get so wrapped up in our own lives that we forget to be nice to other human beings.

I can’t wait for you to come back to Phoenix so we can see the rest of your photos. Oh, and Jacy may have told you, but Allisence is leaving, so there may be an opening. But you’d have to apply to the A1 team. It would be awesome to have you back in the newsroom though! Then I’d have someone to get lunch with.

Anyway, back to work. I am so jealous of your adventure.

The sole towels were an integral part of the experience. Miss ya too Maggie Magster. How’s the West Coast?
