Many of us work seven days a week a the Florida Sea Base. We take a day off when we can or when we have a specific need to go to the mainland (ike a doctor’s appointment). One of the downsides to working every day is it’s hard to remember what day of the week it is. So I bought a new clock for my office. It doesn’t tell you the time of day, just the day of the week. It’s GREAT!
Speaking of working seven days a week, Capt. Mike (the Boat Whisperer) and Capt. Rich Beliveau (wealthy retired underwear model) worked like dogs Saturday and Sunday installing a new motor and transmission in S/V Trade Wind. They are mechanicing maniacs.
Some of our volunteers have left. The landscaping looks beautiful and the remodeling of the side of the Annex facing the water is complete except for painting. I want to mention everyone’s name again; Steve and Leah Martin, Warren and Carol Bacon, John and Marlene Reilly and Water and Maxine Frost. What an incredible team. Words cannot express the wonderful deeds these folks do for the Florida Sea Base. Thank you so very much.
I noticed that Capt. Katie and Capt. Joey have gotten off the dock aboard S/V Calypso Poet for some sailing without participants. Isn’t it cool to have a job that you enjoy so much that you do it for fun as well? We may never be millionaires, but being boat captains, scuba instructors, ski & snowboard instructors, and the like has some enjoyable benefits. And the view from the office is usually pretty nice as well. I’m going to leave you with two photos.
