Today marks our final full day of passage and as sad as it sounds, I will miss the endless horizons. Wake ups started at 8 today but for those that got up early enough were able to eat a hearty breakfast before we started our Navigation Master Exam. We were given two hours for each watch team to complete the long and tedious test. I feel confident in our crew as we had daily practices, also we haven’t gotten lost yet so our navigation must be on point. A short break was given for lunch but after cleanup, exams quickly began again. After exams ended, we were happy as we knew we no longer had class and we able to rest for the remainder of the day. After final on deck showers was dinner, the Chicken Cordon Bleu was especially delicious today because Tina was at the head of our cooking team. The day went by relatively quickly and we are cherishing the time as it goes by because our trip will soon come to an end. We should arrive in Villefranche by morning and we are all itching to get on land again. The sun goes down slowly this evening and we are able to get a look at that beautiful Mediterranean sunset again with nothing but the salty sea around us.
