I came to the realization today during 2-6 bow watch that in three days, we’ll have two weeks left here on Argo. Only two weeks and here I thought just a month ago that this trip would last forever. We are already beginning to mark things as lasts. This is our last multiple day passage. Today is my last day as skipper of the day. This may very well be our last open ocean sunset. Since month three of the trip has begun, time seems to have been moving faster. Opinions and emotions are mixed here aboard Argo. Most of us can’t even bear to think of leaving. Meanwhile, Kris has taken to teasing us about how soon we’ll be home. He’s only joking that he’ll be glad to be rid of us, but it does bring to light the sad reality that we’ll soon be leaving our floating world. I think, and I’d hazard a guess that most of my shipmates agree, that we are nowhere near ready to leave. I still learn new things every day, each sequential piece of the ocean seems more beautiful than the last.
