Watch C Reports in from St. Croix

Watch C: Mary, Aubrey, Caitlin, Jordan, and Jeff

This morning we woke up at 7:30 and had bacon and egg sandwiches for breakfast. As always they were delicious. After taking a group picture/video of us on the Roseway we set sail for St. Croix and our final destination of our trip. The sail took about 5 hours and we spent most of our time practicing for the deck hand Olympics that are taking place tomorrow. When we arrived in St. Croix we had the afternoon to work on some more seamanship skills and also climb the rigging (thats what holds the masts up). It was an amazing view! After that we had some free time to go snorkeling and swimming or just chill on the boat. While snorkeling a group saw some spotted eagle rays, sting rays, blow fish, lion fish, a baby barracuda, and a washing machine fish (also known as a washing machine on the bottom of the ocean). We then had a delicious dinner of pot roast and like every other night enjoyed doing our evening chores. Tonight we will be performing "The Tempest" for the crew and the rest of the class when they aren't on stage. Later tonight we will be enjoying an anchor watch free night, which will hopefully lead to an undisturbed night's sleep. We are looking forward to seeing everyone in a couple of days but we will all be sad to leave. Good night from the Roseway.
