September 22, 2017: We woke up bright and early this morning at 0530 with a beautiful sunrise starting to happen over the horizon. Ocean Classroom students and educators were sad to say goodbye to to Hurricane Island but excited to start our next adventure aboard Roseway. After a quick boat ride to Rockland, we started our 4.5 hour bus ride to Boston. For lunch we stopped at a rest stop and stocked up on snacks for the rest of the trip. We arrived in Boston at 1300 with smiling faces because we knew we would see our friends and family! The time finally came when we were able to board the Roseway, we were able to unpack or “nest” (as the crew would say) before our family arrived. Finally the time came, our families started arriving for our final goodbye. Even though it was raining there was a smile on everyone’s face.
