We are both keeping busy studying for captains licenses and radio upgrades, fixing, mending, etc. Adjima is lost without her sunspot to sleep in and has declared herself the Inspector Of Everything and is making a pest of herself. It's a good thing she's so perfect in all other ways or it would be really annoying.
Ice, Ice Baby
To me, sailboats are tropical things, warm water, sun, fun, ice in my drink. So there's just something inherently wrong with seeing ice around a sailboat. And something VERY wrong with seeing ice around MY sailboat. I was leaving for class early this morning and the boat was surrounded by ice. Ice. It took me a minute to figure out why the water had those funny cracks in it. The marina was ice from the inside docks to the breakwater on the other side of the channel. My first reaction was one of Steve's favorite military acronyms "WTF, over!" My second reaction was to call Steve and tell him to poke his head out and take a look. His reaction is not printable. I went off to class, came home later this afternoon, it still hasn't melted. I have to take my hat off to the Tourism Council in Oriental and their version of the winter weather that we all believed. There are quite a few people here, like us, walking around saying "What happened to warm and sunny?"
