the way up from Virginia I kept hoping the weatherman was going to be
wrong and that the sun was going to show its face, but that didn't
happen and it rained almost all day long. With the poor weather
the number of volunteers onboard was down but there was still plenty to
do. This morning we had a bunch of scouts onboard as volunteers
and so a group of them worked with me polishing portholes. This is
a task that has been ongoing for a while, not everybody wants to do them
because they can be a pain to do. That said the scouts were very
motivated and we made a lot of progress on the Main Deck level.
Even though it was a cold rainy day, all day long there was a steady
stream of visitors to the ship, many were young kids from school groups
or other youth organizations. The Docents earned their money
today, that's a poor joke, because the Docents are all volunteers and
therefore don't make anything anyway. Those who volunteer to
conduct tours onboard the ship put in an awful lot of time and effort to
learn all about the ship and be prepared to answer questions, and I
think they do a great job! I encourage any visitors reading this,
who live close to the ship and have an interest in volunteering, to come
on down and get involved, it's a great experience. For information

Well, that's about it for today, I saw lot's of visitors onboard,
polished about a dozen portholes and didn't take very many pictures at
all. Below are just a couple to show how wet of a day it really
was, oh well it was the first rainy day I spent onboard.
