Rain drove us inside, cutting our exploration of the harbor short. We swam, shopped for food, fought for supremacy on a favorite video game, played hands of poker, and prepared Asian-style pancakes.
We bunked at the WD facility: Girls (A/E/S) took a room; P got a couch. J and his dad met us at the event. We also met future sea scout, K, and his mom.

We discussed our local dive shop, Coral Edge Adventures, and the various dive sites in the region. Our boatswain, E, discussed diver safety, recent trips, and diver certification levels. We shared our plans for ScubaJam 2019 and Sea Base.
See you under the water!

National Capital Boat Show. We joined local Sea Scout ships promoting Boater Safety while representing our program to the larger boating community! Our thanks to USCG Auxiliary Occoquan-Fairfax Flotilla for joining us in the booth.
We visited with 24 families with youth from 4 to 17 years old. There were eight families with Sea Scout age youth in Reston, Warrenton, Manassas, and Haymarket, Virginia.

About Sea Scout Ship 2 / Adventure
Sea Scouts BSA is unique in that "[m]ore trust and responsibility [is] placed on a Sea Scout than all other programs combined. We challenge them to learn, lead, and pit their skills, ability and judgement against the most dangerous environment humans dare to go."
