At Sea: Recovery from a Rough
August 25, 2002
This is my stateroom aboard Eagle.
The top bunk is mine. Last night the challenge was to stay in
that bunk. My stateroom is located in the stern of the ship. Anyone
who has spent any time aboard a vessel at sea will tell you that
the bow and the stern get the most movement. In order to remain
in my bunk and not on the floor, I tucked my covers as tightly
as possible around and under the mattress. By sliding in from
the head of the bed, the covers kept me pinned to the bed. I also
held on to the rail. Slept like a baby.
Off duty crew members took every opportunity
to catch a nap.
It was a busy night.
However, the teaching still goes on.
I am attending a class on small engine repair.
Another beautiful day at sea.
The best to you, shipmates
