”The last few days have been pretty uneventful. We ended up finishing onloading early and have just have a lot of time off for my division. I’ve been able to finish one book and start my second one. I didn’t think I would start finishing them during onload week.
The United States Coast Guard will come soon so we have been running a lot of lifeboat drills. The more we do them, the quicker we get. By the last drill we had it down in 7 minutes. It was really exciting to see how fast we got it all done compared to the first time just yesterday.
It is almost Friday! We’re just about ready to go!”
Thank you for letting us know how your week wrapped up, Pricilla! I am glad that you shared that you squeezed in an opportunity to read. That will inspire your 20,931 student followers to do the same.
We look forward to hearing from you next week when the TS Kennedy is at sea.
This is a great place to include photos taken after the Fire & Boat Drill on Wednesday when cadets were returning to their holds carrying their lifejackets. Of course, cadets would never pose for photos during a drill.
Notice how narrow the passage ways are on deck. It would really tight if cadets were heading in opposite directions carrying their lifejackets, wouldn't it? There is a traffic pattern: Walk forward on the starboard side of the ship and aft on the port side of the ship.
