Nothin' better than the smell of banana slugs in the morning

As we were awakened from our solos we heard various stories of banana slugs. They went from slugs crawling into shoes to on journals, over personal belongings and even a couple of them mating. Not wanting to stay in Banana-Slug infested woods, we cleaned and carried our things down to the dingys faster than ever before. Once to the boats we divided into our crews while stuffing down a quick breakfast. As it was a long stretch with little wind, we motored our way back to our home port. Once we docked we had an intense cleaning while the smell of pizza wafted throughout all the boats, our cleaning prize. The pizza was truly delicious, the average amount of pizza slices per person was about four slices. We left our boats for the last time, happy with the promise of showers, flushing toliets, and infinite water supply. For the next couple hours we savored our chill time on land. Soon Mark and Jen called a meeting to discuss
NLC things and get our questions answered by Susie Jostyn. The answers we got inspired us, and bellies growling we headed off to a bowling ally that boasted of the 4th best fish and chips in the country. Bowling was loads of fun and we are now headed to bed.

Humongous thanks to:

Goodnight family and friends-
