Ocean Classroom: Day 41

Happy Halloween!  Today I was awoken, and none too excited to get out of bed, I merely rolled over.  Laying there, I wondered what all the commotion and noise was up on deck, and I only realized it after a classmate shouted in celebration.  “It’s Halloween!” I exclaimed, jumped out of bed, and ran up on deck to see the Roseway had been transformed with decorations. 

We ate a quick breakfast and were then told to change into bathing suits because we were going to spend a couple hours at the pool.  We are docked at the Westin in Savannah, a sweet resort.  I threw on my swim trunks and basically sprinted to the pool, super excited for the hours in the near future.  We collectively had so much fun at the pool.  It was a great way to cool off from the hot Georgia sun.  After lunch, each watch group was given a pumpkin to carve.  My watch had a bit of a hard time deciding what to carve into ours, but we finally decided to go with a traditional face with a surprise in the back.  After everyone was done with their pumpkins we were given free time, and we all quickly got ourselves over to the city. 

I ended up eating a spectacular burger for dinner and purchased a light jacket from a thrift store in preparation for winter back in Andover.  After dinner and shopping, we were told we were going to watch a movie at the hotel.  We headed over, grabbed some lawn chairs, and sat back as we watched Hocus Pocus, ending our amazing Halloween in fashion with a spooky film.  This was definitely a Halloween that I am going to remember for years to come, and I am so glad to have shared with my classmates on Roseway.
