As I stepped onto the slippery grey boat named shrimp, my feet almost slipped out from underneath me, but luckily they did not. I sat down by tiller and got ready next to Susanna to steer the boat. I looked up at Roseway, and Ollie was laughing at my driving skills as Holly smiled at me like I was her child taking my first steps. My job was to stay right next to Roseway and although the task sounds easy the boat turns the opposite way you turn the tiller. Once I got used to it, it was so much fun! I had to pull up next to Roseway while moving. Waves splashed up and hit my face. Once again I fell getting aboard, but I made it. We set sail and are finally underway. While eating dinner I remembered we were playing word assassin. Our cook Sean came to help me write this, but quickly slipped my word into it and now I am out of the game. We are underway for New York and then Maryland.
