How do a village nested 100 kilometers from the nearest highway stays alive?
But first we will re-count the battle that Valerie had with a deep breathing swimmer last night. We were ready to go to bed at the unthinkable hour of 19.00, when the discreet splash started. Not long after the deep breathing [...]
Undoubtedly we could have stayed longer and enjoyed all the friendships we had made but the call for warmer weather is building up stronger and we untied our lines around noon. Unfortunately, we scared ourselves at departure as we touched the dock from the surge coming to the side and heard a light crack! *Nooooo!* [...]

One more day and the crew will be back together, so what do we do to prepare for the arrival of the chief?
