Learning Knots, Raising Sails, and Getting used to Life on a Ship

Waldorf Lexington

"It’s day 2 of 5. We were awoken by the melodic strumming of Ben’s ukulele sending shivers down our spine. We stumbled bleary-eyed out onto the deck. We hurried through our chores, for there was a delicious breakfast awaiting us in the galley. We then hoisted the sails and raised anchor, which was a grueling arm workout.

“Muster midships!” Is what we heard, loud, clear, booming through the air. We responded just as loud, just as clear. An hour and a half of rotations followed. Group A prepared our lunch, one scoop of rice, one scoop of soup, and Lima beans. More rotations followed, 3 hours to be exact, and games as well. We had a musical filled downtime until dinner arrived. Also, Luca learned the bowline knot very well. Potatoes and chicken filled our stomachs with a comforting feeling. We now await our anchor watch. Good night to all."
