Happy Thanksgiving! Today is Turkey Day, and it has got to be the best Thanksgiving and one I will never forget. We started the day off, waking around 06:30. After oatmeal for breakfast, we set off to learn how to surf. It was part of a wave dynamics lab for oceanography. Simon gave us some lessons, and all of us got the chance to surf as well as a boogie board. Some of us were better than others, but it was loads of fun. After an exciting and tiring day of surfing, we either took freshwater showers onshore, which was a nice treat or returned to the boat for familiar deck showers before our Thanksgiving night out. Eating a French Thanksgiving dinner was new to all of us and better than we expected. Stuffing ourselves with delicious French food was amazing, and I think it was the best meal I’ve had yet. Anyway, it was weird to think today was Thanksgiving since we were in the Caribbean on a sailboat, but we all had a great night.
