We did plan to go, but the weather forecast which hedged its best with "slight" "moderate" and "severe" quicky turned to a gale warning!
So - we are starting our diesel engine management course shortly and this afternoon doing "splicing" I asked if that was similar to Salsa and got the lovely sarcastic look from our skipper!
Anyway, its now 10am - we had our first lecture in diesel engine management.
|Chris and John get stuck in checking the engine!|
|They spend so much time there - we all wonder if Chris is really in John's confessional!|
|So I take a peek via the side doors - to find...they are really checking the engine after all!|
We then had a lovely lunch with yet another round of tiger bread with various fillings. Duncan will insist on lots of pickled onions - sure it cant be good for him!
Following lunch, and yet another visit to the Chandlers.....we had a demonstration on.....
Whipping, Splicing, and Dogging - yes! I cant believe it - I've come here on a trip of a lifetime and find Im whipping and dogging! You know, when you learn another language, you rely on your tutor to tell you the truth when they teach you new words........
Anyway - here we are learning whipping, splicing and dogging....
|Look at John with his Portugese Plait!|
|How studious are we!|
