Ocean Classroom: Day 31

In transit to Charleston, of coast of Virginia Beach

Today we had French toast for breakfast- Yes, we had French toast for breakfast!!  It was the most amazing breakfast ever and it had made my day!


We were anchored for the majority of the day.  During this time, I was able to catch up on dittying (making my ditty bag- a small canvas bag for tools), homework, and some reading.  I also spent this time to talk to my friends and prepare for getting aloft cleared. 


At noon, I was tested on the station bill for aloft clearance.  Shortly after, I was given an all hands order to set the sails and begin to go underway.


As we head further South, the weather begins to get warmer and I am able to spend more time out on deck to admire the beautiful scenery while voyaging.


At 1800, we had watch and it was quite a productive watch because I didn’t get a chance to sit down at all!


It has been a month since we are on the boat.  Exactly on the 21st of last month, we had our first glimpse of Roseway.  It is crazy to think that in less than a month, we will be leaving the boat.  And I am having mixed emotion about it .  Happy that I will be able to talk to my parents again.  Sad that I will be leaving the people who had been here for me for the past two months.
