and they are still flowing........

my daughter who is 19 joined the merchant navy as a cadet deck officer on a sponsored degree course in January, after a tough time at school being laughed at by the head teacher in year 10 for telling him and the careers officer she wanted to be a ships captain she strived to raise her c grade in maths to a distinction level and gain a sponsorship to get it at Fleetwood nautical college.

because we are bound by the OSA, I cannot say anymore except that we watched her blacked out ship set sail from a port in the UK tonight LIKE A GHOST SHIP on an 8 week voyage to somewhere west of the UK, and my god did it make me feel proud, knowing that she'll be doing her first bridge watch duty for real later today.......

having a beer or two tonight to stifle the tears................missing her already.
