Tomorrow morning we'll be waking up in London, and hitting the road for Dover, England. Yesterday, I had a fun swim with the Dearborn crew at Levagood's long course pool. We celebrated Jeff's birthday with an abundance of 50s (Jeff, I won't tell how many), and then shared an enjoyable send-off breakfast. Thank you Jim, Mike, Bob, Joe, Jeff, Michael, Tim, Barb, Maddie and Tracy. Our bags are finally packed. The vacuum space saver bags worked wonders for traveling with swim parkas, towels, winter gear, and fleece blankets. It's summer vacation and I'm traveling with hand warmers, mittens, wool socks, winter swim parka, and a fleece beanie. I didn't pack this warm when we went to Alaska. I know when I finish training in the harbor each day, or step back onto the boat, I'll need to quickly get warm. Wednesday nights send-off bash was terrific. Thank you, friends, for sharing the evening with us and for your words of encouragement.
