REMARKS: Did you know that if you are not one of the people assigned to rust bust, the sound of 10 chipping hammers being used at the same time sounds kind of nice. Like a chorus of softly clinking metal. Listening to it, and trying to pick out what song it most sounded like, certainly made the time go faster for those of use on the cleaning team. During our days at anchor it is nice that the watches are rotated off for the afternoon or evening to explore the town or parks nearby. In the picture a few of us were on the hunt for three wild sheep named Cracker, Barrel and Jack. Alas, no such luck was to be had….though we did hear a rustle or two in the bushes alongside the trail.
