Voyaging off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina

Hello! We are officially voyaging! This is the longest we have spent underway! It will be three days when we get to Charleston. Today Aubrey was galley assistant and made the best monkey bread I have ever had, everyone loved it. We have all calmed down from our inevitable bit of homesickness that comes with the mail drop and we are just excited to be able to wear t-shirts without getting cold! It's exciting to be finally headed south and enjoy the warm weather- its been beautiful! The water is so blue- the bluest I have ever seen. We have been underway all day today. When we got up for watch our watch officer told us that we needed to be ready and know how to strike sail quickly during a squall because there was one on the forecast for the evening. Luckily, we did not need to strike sail but its good we learned how to just in case we need it! We are rotating watch officers again, so we have been having check-ins to make sure everything is going well. This trip has gone by so quickly and its almost over! My mom’s birthday is November 13th - I know its early but happy birthday mom! Miss all the family so much! Love you and see you soon!
