Our F. P. gang has been slowly settling down, getting to know the ship. Our WL Emma has proved very knowledgeable (which is probably due to her ¡¥older¡¦ age, now 1 year older than yesterday); she is always there for us with a smile on her face.
Dom (now 1 year older as of today) will never forget steering our ship into the Scheveningen harbour ¡V as we know him, he will have a smile on his face for another 2 weeks (and let¡¦s not forget serving tea as a part of his mess duty while the ship is moving as his favourite past time at the moment¡Kƒº )
Nick, our wanderer, who also enjoys pulling the ropes, has very bravely climbed the mast and then wandered off for one of his walks again.
Martina is proud to be the first person from our gang to come down with seasickness and to climb to the royal sail. ¡Kand the food is not bad either. She thought this would be a ¡¥slimming¡¦ experience!
Katie had the most exciting experience right the first morning on the ship while being on harbour watch. At 6 am a group of 40 ¡¥military hunks¡¦ from a Mexican ship next to us ran past us doing their morning exercise. What a sight! Well worth getting up early in the morningƒº
Peter, the second member of our group to ¡¥feed the fish¡¦ so farƒº, has enjoyed climbing the mast the most.
Steve, the South African giant, ¡¥enjoys everything¡¦ (in his own words) and smokes way too much while doing it (our words).
Andy and Duncan, our 2 experienced seamen, have been very patient with us ¡¥sea rookies¡¦ and we love them for it! Keep us the hard work, guys! There¡¦s more to come¡K ƒº
Last night, our first night watch was surprisingly very enjoyable. We set all the sails even though we didn¡¦t gain as much speed as we hoped because of the tide.
Let¡¦s see what happens next ¡V our stop in Scarborough should be pretty wild¡K
