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.

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.
