... and our favorite intern. All to soon, it was time to depart. Back to the boats we went. The intern driving my boat tried to beat the others back to the dock. She switched the boat full speed ahead, and we managed to catch up and pass one other boat. At one point a fish almost hit a classmate in the face.
