Heave to, and prepare to be boarded

Sea Base wasn't my first nautical adventure. Here's an oldie for a Throwback Thursday. On this occasion, we had taken sixteen Scouts and leaders to Tanzania to do a leadership seminar. After the Tanzanian and Congolese Scouts went home, we did a little touring. Here, we are being given a cruise on Joy in the Harvest's boat.

Since I'm now turning my attention to my Africa trip in two weeks, I thought this was particularly appropriate. BTW, that's a Swiss Army knife in my jaws.
