First, a big thanks to Doug Kern for keeping everyone informed of what was happening during the race!!
Now, let’s see if I can finish up London pretty quickly.
And add some exciting stories about the trip!
So, I really had a great time being able to visit with Anais and Christina. The last Sunday I was there, Anais and husband Alistair and I went to the National Gallery to see an exhibit called Sound scales. It was really neat as it put together musicians making music as they saw a painting. Provided me a whole new perspective about viewing art.
After that, Anais and I went back to the docks and she viewed the Queen’s yacht.
Pretty interesting boat. Oars and all.
Next, Anais got to do a bit of work for me. Between she and Doug, I finished up one project which is still looking good!
Learning a bit of splicing for end of Halyards (lines that hoist up the sails).
Crew mate Doug and Anais made my work disappear!
Getting to spend time with Christina and Anais was a definite highlight of the trip. Catching up on what they were now doing was great fun!
Later some of the crew mates shared dinner in a pretty good Pizza place right by the boat. I did not break their hearts by telling them I had already had pizza with Anais and Alistair.
Doug, Ryan, Jamieson (NBC reporter doing the story on us), Skipper Diane, Chris, Elaine and a few more not seen!
I know that many of you refuse to believe that I really worked on the blog while at St, Kat’s. Well, here is proof!
6am in the morning at Starbucks.
Outside of Starbucks after close with Hal and Doug!
A bit for NBC and a little TEAM building:
Having fun with my famous upper body training. (Hint: never tell anyone what off the wall thing that you might be doing.)
Han , my South Korean crew mate in actions! He is very strong!!!
Closing for this portion so I don’t hit the wrong button and lose it!! More after supper!
