With our injured shipmate on our minds we all had a day to settle our thoughts. With exhaustion and work bearing down on us, our stay in Langkawi was extended. Some decided to venture ashore either riding a cable car to a mountain peak, checking the internet, riding horses, eating KFC, or meandering about. Others, myself included, remained on Argo for some recuperation from the spreading colds. Taking a few naps and catching up on work I huddled down below like a cave dweller, getting air only for feeding time. To raise morale, a few shipmates visited our lost dog bearing notes, news, and chocolate. Although we would like to be on the move, we rest, nestled just beyond the breakwater, at the foot of jungle covered peaks, watching the constant clouds roll our way.
