during training we spent a lot of time learning and working and on duty (we carry pagers when we are working or on duty overnight in case of emergency and have to be on site during those times), but not all time was work time. we managed to spend some time at the various beaches around kittery and down the nh coast. one weekend we spent some time at various beaches, examing creature in tide pools and soaking up a little vitamin c, then met ryan and stephanie in hampton beach and drove up to maine and went out to eat. it was great. we sat outside by the water and ate fish and watched the sunset. could life get any better?
