#1000 Hot coffee on a cold bow watch
Posted by Erin on May 2, 2011
Ugh, sometimes it can be miserable up there. On the front lines, eyes peeled for anything that could get in the ship’s way and cause trouble. But you are also exposed, buffetted from all sides by cold, salty wind and your watch seems to be stuck. Has it really only been 2 minutes?! You aren’t going to make it.
Then, you reach down for that hot cup of coffee (or tea or hot chocolate), take that warming sip and realize that you are standing on the bow of a tall ship sailing through the ocean. And there is nowhere else you’d rather be.
