Flare practice on Saturday night with the girls. Dont worry, we let all the right people know. I was completing Safety and Survival at Sea training. We weren't allowed to take photos in the pool, but the 3 hours spent in full wet weather gear, life jacket inflated, maneouvering with other bodies in the water and the life raft, was much more real. The flare was a thrill really... the afternoon in the water was much more sobering.
