|Today starts at the anchorage off
Sunny, winds light out of SE, barometer rising at
30.52, temperature a balmy 12 degrees C.
12:00 AM- As tortured B watch nestled down in
the focsle, Mike was left in the freezing
cold for anchor watch. The point being, we were
freezing then finally warm. Lauri our cook woke
up eraly to create a delicious meal for the
thirty-six famished people on board. Being woken
up so early turned out to be positive. The
Provincetown monument tortures us
breakfast was Great! Delicious! Wonderful! Yummy!
Extraordinary! We didnt drop the utensils.
NEVER, never drop the utensils.
7:00 Am- Chores! Arg! Wash the dishes! Scrub
the pooper! (Nicks job) Arg! Clean the
soles! Etc. etc. Corwin, get rid of your problem
NO BARKING SPIDERS!
9:00 AM- Row row row your Dory gently out of
ESCAPE THE MONUMENT! Then, to climb
the rigging, to feel like you are flying
top of the world! Ill never let go Jack!
But seriously, many people had a great time aloft
and in the Dorys. Let the good times roll
No cars, we are on a boat. Some people
participated in the arts and farts program and
made beautiful fantabulous jewelry.
2:00 PM- Our captain gave us a wonderful talk
on safety on board and drills for emergency. We
went through a man overboard drill where our
lovely orange beauty buoy was retrieved from the
cold water and brought back to have mouth to
mouth resuscitation done by Eric Peterson. So, we
learned our safety rules and switched shifts
Pluck, Pluck, Pluck, no more uni-brow
P.S.- Liz W. is GUMBY!!!!
