The 13 hours of sleep I got Monday night were great.  It’s 03:00 and I have slept for about 2 hours so far tonight.  The seasonal staff members of the Florida Sea Base were off yesterday morning.  After lunch, we met in the Adams Building for staff training.  I was on my feet from about 11:00 to 17:00 leading the training on Tuesday.  By then I was barely able to walk due to pain from the titanium femur in my left leg.  So far the pain remains so intense that I can’t stay asleep.  I am barely able to walk the 10 steps from the aft cabin to the salon on Escape.  It will be better in a day or two (sometimes 3).

I’m through whining.


The Coral Reef Sailing crew aboard S/V Silent Harmony in will on the dock in a few hours to enjoy their day of shore leave at the Florida Sea Base.  We have a 30% of rain, a have of 76°F, and a gentle breeze from the south on store for today.  The crew should have a very enjoyable day tubing, paddleboarding, sailing and kayaking.


Scuba Commissioner Laura Kuras will lead the scuba staff as they continue to perform the annual servicing of the scuba tanks.

The end.  I’m going to lay back down.
