The captain began by telling the men a little of what he and I had seen through the telescope the previous evening: enough to let them understand we might be close to danger, but not so much that they might be daunted. They responded with a show of courage that did them credit -- clapping one another on the back, and boasting they were afraid of nothing.-- pg 162
QUICK NOTE...Update: 6/25/19
Still working through things. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. You'd think we'd be back in our home by now, since the disaster occurred October 2018, but nope. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.
