A Beautiful End to a Great Day

I have been on the boat for over 3 weeks now and we have been non-stop busy.  Always either running, loading or discharging, with no down time.  Now this is a good thing 'cause when we're busy, the time flies by, but it doesn't give ya time to tend to the details of boat maintenance.  Well, I was thrilled when last night we finished discharging at 1 a.m. and got to "stand by" all day 'til 5 p.m. before we had to make the 2 hour trip to our next port.  I spent the morning doing paperwork and cooking a good lunch for the crew while they spent the morning painting and taking advantage of a beautiful Spring day.  We headed out for our next location in Breton Sound and as I approached the location, the sky and everything was just aglow with the beautiful pastel colors of a glorious Gulf Coast sunset.  Truly a fitting end to a great day.  Right now we are sitting at the dock, already to load in the morning.  A good night's sleep of the waves rocking at the dock,  then come dawn, it's up and at it again.
