Bring on the festivities
Back underway to get to Tonga, we’ve skipped a day! Yep, the international dateline strikes again. On the way out, we had two Mondays and now, they’ve skipped Saturday! What a crock... Friday, Sunday and back to Monday. At least they aren’t skipping pizza night. Every underway Saturday, the cooks make several different types of pizza and MWR committee donates sodas to the crew. The band is going to play again tonight, though I doubt they’ll ask me to sing again. I’ve been pretty sick sounding, feel just fine, can’t seem to kick the nasty, deep sounding cough coming out of my chest. If I didn’t know better, I’d say that I have bronchitis or pneumonia. I went for a jog this morning to try to help, looks like it will take me a week to get back into my running routine. No “When I Fall in Love” to make the crew swoon. 😊

No one really knows what to expect tomorrow. We anchor in the morning, supposedly about 8am. It looks like this port will be a lot of community relations projects, I hope to be able to participate this time. Though I definitely don’t want the locals
