Gee

Haze grey and...no, wait! That thing was white!

Got underway on a Coast Guard cutter today. Thing was older than I am. I smell very much like ship tonight.

Had to take the RHIB back in, and boy, howdy, was that a fun ride. I climbed down the ladder into the boat. I know I looked scared. The swells were pitching the boat around a bit. Sat astride one of the little seats, and we were off. The swells bounced us around a bit, and by the time we got to the base my outboard leg was wet, but it was pretty cool. San Diego Bay looks so much different from so close to the water.

Only one drill, but otherwise not too bad.
