Only 6 days left in Texas.
Monday I fly to Seattle to meet my new boat, Capt. and Crew! I am so excited! I can't wait to get up there and see a new part of the country I have never seen before! Hopefully I can get to Mt. St. Helens on a day off or at least do a little wine tasting at the many wineries in the Seattle area. I am kind of relieved that the boat is in the yard for the next month and a half because that will give me time to get to know everyone and the boat before we have guests aboard. It is a private yacht so we wont be doing any charters which I haven't decided if that's good or bad. I think it will be good for me. I have worked on a ton of boats but this will be my first long term gig on a mega yacht. Like I said I was temp stew on one last year in Savannah for a month or so but that boat was in the yard to so I never really got to see what it was like having the boat on the move and people to serve. All I know is I better get my ironing arm in shape...
In other news, I am only trying to take one suitcase. Yeah. One. It's going to be nearly impossible. I am taking ONE pair of boots which I will probably wear on the plane because they take up lots of space in my bag, also to scare my new crew. I may even show up wearing my cowboy hat. :) They are gonna be like, "Oh shit who is this redneck on the dock?" nah... No cowboy hat. I have to bring one pair of cute heels to wear out if I ever go out. Then a couple pair of pants, shorts, a couple of shirts and my personal stuff. I will mostly be wearing uniforms so I guess I don't really need to bring much. P.J.'s. "Modest pajamas." My capt. said. She sounds really cool! I have never seen a female capt. of a megayacht and I can't wait to learn a lot from her.
Well, I'm sitting here on my LoveSac watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. It's a family tradition, since I won't be here yet again for Thanksgiving and Christmas I have to watch it as much as possible right now. I love it.
Check Y'all later!
