Navy Ball

It was a pretty big weekend here on the island. We celebrated the 233rd anniversary of the US Navy in high fashion complete with ceremontial tradition and entertainment galore.

More Chickens

More chickens by popular demand, although I am not sure you would feel the same way about them if they lived outside your door.

Monsoon Season

One of the realities of life on the island is Monsoon Season. After 45 straight days of rain and gale force winds, you come to love the routine: sunny mornings, deluge on the way to lunch, and a comforting howling wind that lulls you to sleep at night. The storm fronts can also make for interesting sailing trips. I almost took an unscheduled trip to Madagascar this past weekend.

Where it all began...

This is actually from Newport, RI last summer during Officer Indoctrination. Looking back, it was one of the best times in my life (just don't tell Chief Barnes). From left: LT Ben Crowley, LT Andrew Himm, LT Ben Lago, LT Daniel Smith, and LT Billy Turley.

Cheesy Work Picture

After 30 years, my own office. I'm re-taking the picture when I get more medals (for posterity of course).
