Location: Bandos, Maldives

Today was a day unlike any other. The fact that our first full rotation of the job wheel landed on Valentine’s Day was no accident. The Gods or the cosmos, or whatever causes bioluminescence, all conspired to make sure that this momentous occasion was marked by the one day a year set aside to celebrate love. Love. We have learned to love Argo as our home, transport, dance partner and as the incredibly sexy lady that she is. We have rinsed, chamoised, rust busted, trimmed, reefed, scrubbed, and caressed her, and she has broken her back to allow us to cross oceans and see incredible sights. We all look forward to continuing the love affair in the months and miles to come. As for what we did today, we explored the island of Bandos, its amazing coral reef wall encircling it, and indulged in the various resort amenities that have become all too foreign to us. It was a relaxing day capped by an enjoyable night ashore. Skipper Bowman wishing you a good one.
