For our last whole day aboard Ocean Star, we started the day early at 6 am to get a head start on our final boat appreciation session. Before getting to work, we had our last boat-cooked breakfast of apple cinnamon bread prepared by our chefs Michaela and Will. The rest of the morning consisted of scrubbing, spraying, sponging, lifting, some more scrubbing, sweeping, bleaching and some last minute packing. We then took a break to raise anchor, move to the dock and eat our last lunch together. After that brief reprieve, we then jumped right back into more scrubbing, sweeping, rinsing, sponging and again some more scrubbing. Once we finished our huge boat appreciation project, we had a little free time to once again explore the shops at Soper’s Hole and take a long shower ashore. With everyone feeling refreshed, we went back to the boat and got ready for our last night out. Now it’s off to The Fish n Lime which is a Seamester tradition for the end of an Ocean Star voyage. We’ll eat some good food in great company one last time before ending this amazing adventure, and it could not be any better than that. As much as we may miss our homes back in the states, I’m not sure any of us are ready to leave our floating home and our new family just yet. The morning of goodbyes is going to be a tough one.
