When spending Christmas on the boat
sometimes the best mindset to have is to just pretend
it's just another day.
But that's hard to do
when you wake up and find Santa (Captain)
left a few presents for you under the tree.
I was tickled to unwrap a new screw driver.
One of those all in one doohickies
with all the different bits in the handle.
But as the engineer on the boat,
I can't help but wonder if the Captain (Santa) was trying to tell me something.
It's not very visible in the photo
but instead of wrapping paper he used old "charts"
you know, maps for the water.
Lunch was amazing.
Chuck, our dechand and self appointed cook outdid himself.
The only thing missing was my family,
who I will reunite with in 2 days on a white sandy beach in the Caribbean.
Here's hoping all you guys have a great Christmas Day,
and a thought for those not as fortunate as I.
