Cheerful service is a big part of Scouting. The Florida Sea Base serves the local area in many ways. Yesterday the Florida Sea Base had the privilege of taking about 60 fourth grade students, parents and teachers to Lignumvitae Key Botanical State Park and Indian Key Historical State Park. Both of these sites are islands or keys and only accessible by boat. Captain Ed Miller and First Mates Tyler Giblin and Phillip Ferrier took half of the group aboard BSA Explorer. First Mates Will Morris and Brenda Mallory and I took the other half aboard BSA Adventure.
Warm, windy and potentially wet pretty much sums up our situation. For the coming week we are looking at highs of 85°F, lows of 79ºF, east winds 10-15 knots, and 20%-30% chance of rain every day.
Here they come! The trickle of staff arrivals has become a flow. Today will be a big arrival day and Saturday all but a handful will be on site. Yahoo!!!
The captains and Coral Reef Sailing vessels are also arriving daily. As a matter of fact, we are very close to having every slip filled and Sailing Director Captain Luke Knuttel has started looking at options to raft boats up until the season begins so that some of the boats are always at sea. (I wonder if Captain Rich is chuckling right now.)
