A sea day...third call.  I am on the same rotation as the first cruise, which means all my third call days are sea days.  Not too big a deal I suppose and it should mean that I am off on a couple of days when Miche is here, so no complaints.

I didn't do too much today.  Got a workout in, two miles on the treadmill while sailing 9 miles from Cuba.  As though there were any other distance to Cuba. Got a new book from the library, "The Survivor's Club".  It is about people who survive ordeals and why.  Air crashes and whatnot.  Pretty interesting and gives recommendations for further reading which is interesting.  I helpe my LMO, Chris set up a blog so she can share the details of her upcoming trek to base camp of Mt. Everest.  I sure hope she follows through and puts stuff up.  I will be following her and there will be a link up here soon.  Just giving her a bit to get set up. 

Other than that, not too much.  There was a fire safety meeting today with the decision makers on the ship.  It was a discussion about a main space fire scenario.  Pretty interesting and took me back to the fire drills on the Shasta.  I kept wanting to volunteer as a somewhat trained firefighter and kept realizing I was more valuable in a medical role.  It is amazing how that training sticks with you though.  Firefighting, dewatering and clearing smoke.  Good times. 

Tomorrow is Aruba.  I am second call.  I don't know if I will get off.  I might take some of Chris's call in hopes that she will take some of mine on Curacao.  There are a few pictures I would like to take.
