Memorial Day From Gray’s Reef
was our busiest day yet. Last night I was up very late
filling up 29 dive tank for all the morning dives, because
in the morning the divers were going to do a total of
22 dives and need 26 tanks (four for underwater drills).
So last night and this morning very busy everyone was
working very hard to get all of the work for three days
done in one day, because the weather is forecasted to
be very ruff tomorrow. We are actually starting to get
some rain as I am writing this.
this mornings and this afternoon hectic schedule we had
our Memorial Day celebration here on the Foster. The captain
called for a swim call which means that we all get to
just off of the Foster into the water and in Memorial
Day tradition it was very hot today, so the water felt
great. The Chief Boson also hooked up a rope swing to
one of the cranes so that we could all swing into the
water (picture to left).
We actually started a competition to see who could get
the best swing into the water. Needless to say it was
tomorrow we are planning to do a few dives in the morning
and then sail back into Savannah but until then. The good
news is that they repaired the main engines.
everyone had a good Memorial Day
