It’s finally here! After all the cleaning and prep work, we’ve finally put away the last tool and gave the deck a final scrub as we waited to welcome our highly anticipated shipmates. While Brittany and I headed out to finish some last minute provisioning while Kris, Nick, Bryant, Carolyn and Kimi showed our new crew around their home for the next three months. After arriving and finishing up some final paperwork, students were able to unpack, grab some internet and even a quick dip in the pool before a delicious pizza dinner. With an easy night ahead of us to finish unpacking and calling home (as well as head off some remaining jet lag) the excitement in the air is still tangible for all the adventures we have ahead of us.
