Today at 1400 hrs the call came in.
Our security level was increased to Marsec level 2.
We mobilized in minutes.
My engines are always on "Hot Standby" just in case.
Here, we are following our escort boat south,
through the Bayou
to Ground Zero in the Gulf.
We were about to do oil recon,
running grid patterns.......
Actually, we never received a phone call.
Our security level has not changed.
The only level that has changed
is the level of boredom that we are experiencing being tied
to the dock for a week.
So we upped and went for a ride.
And we thought the clouds looked really cool.
