Plan of the Day
This morning started off with lots of Happy Birthdays! Yes today I am turning another year older….wow. Can’t believe I am leaving my 20’s behind and welcoming the 30’s! Well today was pretty relaxing. At breakfast the crew gave me the Birthday hat to wear.
I had to wear it all day, so I did. I spooled a few lines when we started the recovery of the 4N TAO buoy then talked to my parents on the phone….Hi mom and dad! I spent a half hour in the pool. Very nice afternoon for a swim. After my swim, I got ready for dinner. The Stewards made my favorite dinner: Pork chops and mashed potatoes with applesauce. YUMMY! They also sang and made a birthday cake for me. It was a very nice birthday here on the KAIMIMOANA.
