Location: Porto Venere, Italy

Day 15 began after a night of cold and windy anchor watches to a breakfast of ultra massive pancakes. One shipmate even went as far as to claim that they were the biggest pancakes he’d ever seen. On shore leave, shipmates Erick and hiking expert Matt ascended Porto Venere’s highest peak, stumbling upon a literal gold mine on the way up. All other shipmates drank a ridiculous amount of coffee in Italian cafes as the chefs prepared a bangers and mash dinner. The day was concluded with a night out.
