What the Schooner is up to in New Smyrna Beach
August 11. Jeannine and I are running around like mad people, been up since 4:30 this morning getting ready to leave for Chicago to spend a week aboard the Pride of Baltimore II. We probably shouldn't have waited until the last minute to get ready - who knows what we will forget to pack (please don't let it be the deodorant). We've had some great charters the last 2 weeks. The best part is meeting new people - everyone has fascinating stories to tell and I am always amazed at how much we all have in common - places we lived or visited, the kind of work we do, or even the people we know - the small world syndrome is real. We get back from out adventure on Aug. 18th and resume charters on Aug. 19. I've got to dash now, finish the final luggage check and get going to the airport. Life is good.
