Location: North Atlantic

It was 3:30 a.m., and watch was about to end. We were all super tired after a long watch, but then, coming out of the chart house, we just heard this voice that said, ” Do you guys want to see what a shearwater looks like ” and there she was, Anna, holding this bird that had just hit the sail and fallen straight through to the Fo’c’sle (the forward girl’s cabin). Apparently, it had landed on Caroline’s bed, left a present there, and quickly jumped to Gabby’s bunk and woke her up. Just imagine being deep asleep and waking up to a random bird on your chest. Anna then set Sherman down gently at the stern of Argo as watch team two was being woken up by Fifi to take over for the 4 to 8 watch and getting the news about what had just happened. They all came up on deck half asleep to see Sherman. Sherman did take his time to fly away again; he had us worried, but almost before watch was over and watch team 2 relieved us, we just saw him take off and continue on his journey, so we were all happy to see that and could finally go to bed except Caroline because she still needed to find her present on her bed. Now, waking up on the beautiful morning of day 67, I can’t believe it’s been so long. We were supposed to have an oceanography test today, so I woke up at 8:30 a.m. to study a bit more before the test (I was not ready for it), but thanks to Amanda, we didn’t have to do the test today, she instead wanted to do a quick excel lab to help us with our oceanography group project, and after that, we would do a BA (boat appreciation) for being halfway across the Atlantic. I got to clean the fridge, which had some type of red substance at the bottom, and who knows how long it had been in there, but Mac dared me to try it, so that’s what I did. Honestly, I surprised myself because, for some reason, I’ll eat the nastiest stuff from the salty pit because of this game that Calum came up with that if someone puts anything that was in the salty on your knee, you have to eat it so I really don’t get how I can be so picky with food. We also got some new sheets, which was nice. Once the long BA was over, I had to get everyone on deck for dinner, and that’s never easy. Finally, I managed to convince everyone to put their PFDs on at go to the cockpit. Thanks to Erik, we got to eat some awesome Sloppy Joe’s. I have to admit it’s the fullest I’ve ever been after any meal. Finally time for squeeze, and I really do hate to say it, but we are so close to this beautiful experience coming to an end, so my squeeze question was – If you could have a Sea Mester reunion, where would you have it? And I’m happy to say that a few people said Ecuador. Probably my favorite part of the day was about 45 minutes ago. Calum was giving some motivating words after the squeeze, and after Hilary said how about we scream for 5 seconds at full force it was such an amazing feeling. It’s really hard to describe, but just knowing that we are all alone in the middle of nowhere but at the same time you have these strangers that you just met 60 days ago and are now your family just felt so freeing that the best I can do to describe it, but it really doesn’t make justice. Now I have to go on watch. It’s 8:21 p.m., and we have watch from 8 to 12 p.m., so wish us luck. Love from the middle of the Atlantic Xavi
