Lost in Translation

Location: St. Barths
Author: Laura Olin
The day started at 6am for watch team one. One of the most beautiful sights in the world is the sunrise over the endless ocean. Breakfast was nothing fancy, just self serve cereal. One person would use a bowl, clean it, then hand it to the next person. During lunch Eric and Marvin made chicken stroganoff with chilli peppers. Finally at 2pm we made it to St. Barths. It has been a year since I have last been to St. Barths, it is one of my favorite locations in the Caribbean. Imagine a medium sized French town on a tiny island with an even smaller airport. Airplanes just barely clear the peaks of the island before nose diving onto the runway, its fun to watch. After we gave the boat a thorough and much needed cleaning we had an hour where some of us went and bought ice cream and groceries. Dinner was a delicious chicken Caesar salad with cheddar broccoli pasta. After dinner we will be having an Oceanography quiz and hopefully some shore time to stretch our legs. I cant wait for shore time tomorrow and a sure visit to La Creparie. P.S. Hello everyone at home. We are fine and are safely docked in the harbor in St. Barths. I hope to get my phone charged and working again sometime soon. To Giuliano: I love you and miss you!
