Location: The Atlantic Ocean
Today started off with a morning full of discussion regarding the whale spotting last night (that some people claimed didn’t happen since they couldn’t see) and the crazy shooting star that lit up the whole sky. As the day moved forward we all woke up from our naps and had some lunch. After that we had OCE and learned about the make up of water and the amount salt throughout the ocean. We then had MTE, and we reviewed for our IYT Crew Test which was supposed to be tomorrow but it was decided to be moved back an extra day so that we could have an another day to master our knot tying. As usual, after classes we headed on deck for showers, but were disgusted by the cold and rainy weather. Needless to say everyone rushed through that process and got on with extra classes for the PSCT students, dinner for the chefs, and other various chores. Dinner was a bit behind schedule so we used the extra time to talk about the exciting things that are coming up once we get to land. Lately everyone’s food cravings have been getting intense. Although everyone is having fun with our voyage were also excited to see some land, use a bathroom that doesn’t need to be pumped, and to get some ice cream. Today was a typical day but was fun as usual.
