So I decided to drive up to the AFB and look at the beach from the East coast side.
Okay, so this is a little bit late. Did I mention I love going to Guam? It's such a paradise, though things can be a little too quiet.
My number anytime I'm in Guam is 671-482-4664.
So, this was my first chance to get back to work with the Civilian Mariners (CivMars) and let me just say that they are not given as much credit as they deserve. I've been making friends with quite a few of them, especially since the only other girls that are on the ship are CivMars. Yes, I'm the only gal in the MILDET. Though I don't mind, I think most people know I've always been more comfortable in a male dominated environment. What's so great is that I feel comfortable around these gals, they are equally comfortable in their surroundings. For lack of a better way to put it, they're not super girly girls. The two I really like to hang out with, Brittany and Sarah, are both gorgeous gals (please don't think I'm saying they're manly), they just don't put up with any crap either. It's refreshing to have them around.
Anyway, it was back to business as soon
as I got back. Believe me, I was soooo busy for the first week back. It's good though, it put things into perspective for me. I worked hard and played harder when I was finally able to leave the ship. I met up with Sarah at Gab Gab beach a couple of times for barbecues and beer. Also along was the Chief Mate and Bos'n. They're pretty hysterical too, kind of what I imagine of real sailors... though without the perversity (unless you are thinking about sheep jokes).
I finally broke down and rented a car, it's so much cheaper than a taxi. It ended up being worth it, I was able to go to the beaches I love and go into town to get away from everything Navy for a little bit. My OIC (officer in charge) and I went for a couple of dives. For my diving buddies, I dove twice on 1 tank and ended up giving him my other tank so he could do the 2 dives. He was only planning on 1, but with my excellent air consumption, I kicked his booty. It was nice... we did Gab Gab and the Japanese Fuel
Another long night... I went out with the girls, a few of the guy officers and the Captain. That was the most entertaining night. I was the designated driver, but just people watching was hysterical. Yes, we went to a "club" where clothing becomes optional, but it was Brittany and Joe's birthday celebration. Part of the tradition at this place, called Vikings, is to take a birthday boy up and beat the crap out of him. OMG!!! So, they take poor, unassuming Joe up there, rip his boxers down and spank him with his own belt. The Captain paid for them to do it... he offset it with a t-shirt. It was brutality 101. Hope my Dad doesn't read this one (hahaha)!
At any rate, it's going to be a busy next few months. We'll see what things are in store for me...
