Ocean Classroom 2019: Day Twenty

Baltimore, MD

Dear voyage log,

My day started bright and early when Cole woke me up for anchor watch. I was half asleep and confused but Cole soon said, “wake up Jaimes... there are Oreos for midrats!” I was awake for sure now. We are in Baltimore and that anchor watch was a chilly one! I soon was snuggled in my bunk to get a couple more hours of sleep before my big day ahead. The next morning around 7AM Tahg, Chloe, George, Madeline and someone else sang down to the foc’s’le “Tik Tok” by Ke$ha for a lovely wake up. Chores came next (C-Watch had deckwash) and we munched down some breakfast fast! At this point I was anxious to set out for our first day in Baltimore! We were divided into our H.O.P. groups and began walking the streets. Olivia, Pete and I ventured down to the farmer’s market and I bought a yummy bagel after all of the interviews. We went back to the boat for lunch and there was a wedding happening on the pier where we were docked! Anyways after lunch we walked for about 30 minutes to our IMET (Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology) tour. After the tour we went to a yummy pastry/coffee shop and I splurged on coffee and cheesecake. I ate that very fast and it was delicious. Soon we worked on the H.O.P. paper and headed back to Roseway! Oh and by the way Kerri, Olivia and I marched on the city sidewalks on our way back to the boat. The day ended with a beautiful sunset (as always). We will see what awaits for tomorrow!
