It t’was the day before the Big Apple and the boys in the focs’l where all sound asleep. Suddenly we all awoke to the strumming of McKenzie’s wonderful wake up song. After morning chores and a deck wash in the rain we were greeted by a great breakfast from Sean and our first galley assistant Jake. After dishes and being stood down for the morning most of the students caught up on homework and sleep. Suddenly Thane spotted his boat Rose on the horizon and Matthew, a former Ocean Classroom educator and also skipper of Rose, came along side to sing us the sea shanty “Patty Lay Back”. We from the rain in the salon where we had literature and history class for the afternoon. We were greeted by our third meal of the day and Sean’s amazing French bread. After a sunset with red colors and now night, hopefully tomorrow will be a delight. Peace and love.
