Crew Change


Crew change day. Off with the work cloths after 3 weeks and on with the good cloths that have been on a hanger on my wall, looking at me for 21 days, almost mocking me.

Clean up the boat, finish the paperwork ( thanks to Homeland Security, the Coast Guard, ABS and other governing bodies there is plenty ) leave my crew change notes for my relief and tell him how good everything is running ( whether it is or not ) pack my bag and head for Pennsylvania.

It hasn't rained in Texas in like.....105 years, but today, on crew change day, the day we have to get a launch to take us from the anchorage to shore, the day we all rush to get in our rental car and make it to the airport so we can all make our flights, the Texas sky has opened up like we're doing a remake of Noah's Arc or something. 


But that's ok. It's crew change day and I'm pretty darn happy.

Mark, If you had known it was going to rain, you could have just wore your swim suit. Always keep a big trash bag handy, you can make a hole in the bottom for your head and away you go. Have a fun time at home with your family and friends. Blessings to all, xoxo,Susie

Have a safe arrival and relaxing time at home with your family. I'm picturing you running from rental car to airport terminal with large trash bag, hole in bottom, over you head.

If you have any influence over these things, the next time you are getting too much rain where you are, send some of it out to Southern California...
