Well it worked out well in port. Out to sea, however, not so good. In fact, not at all.
But that's the only semi-downer on the whole trip. The first bright spot was, I never got sick. Woohooo! That was my biggest concern. I could see going down the first day and getting over it on my last day. My wife said "take the dramamine", I did, and not a bit of queasiness at all.
Of course a 40,000 ton vessel and smooth seas helps immensely.
Anyway, I'm back. Just landed at US Coast Guard Station Miami. I can now say I've flown off the deck of a Navy warship while underway. Really a great experience and smooth as silk.
I found out the Kearsarge has 12 decks - and I was on every one of them at some point. Got some great video, great pics and some great interviews. All to come over the next weeks.
In the meantime, shower, food and a nap. It's good to be back.
