Location: Underway to Isle de Salut in the Atlantic Ocean
I awoke this morning to the fresh smell of salt water blowing off the ocean currents. Last night we crossed the equator celebrating with a ceremony for the crew. A few people participated in the crossing ritual of shaving their heads, doing away with their long locks of hair, giving it to the ocean as a gift. It was a lot of fun, everyone gathered around to see hair being chopped off. After the hairs where chopped we all had OCE and PSCT class and had loads of fun learning about weather patterns. Every day has been a new adventure for me aboard Argo I learn more and more each day. Hope I keep learning. This is the skipper, out.
