It is currently our third day docked in Savannah, Georgia but this morning we got lucky with the only opportunity to sleep in until 0900! It was nice for many of us to wake up to blue skies and delicious chocolate chip muffins made by Tierney and Charlotte after almost 12 hours of sleep. Our morning was followed by regular chores of doing dishes and scrubbing soles as the sun started to heat up. Then some of us who were not yet aloft cleared had to help Mr. Terry with safety checks of all the immersion suits, life vests, and pfd’s. It was not the most fun way to spend our morning while others got to relax but we still got the job done as efficiently as possible. The afternoon was filled with almost four hours of class and check in’s with our educator Thane on our op-ed writing pieces regarding our reading material, The Alchemist. We also listened to a political article and ended with a lesson about animal domestication. The classes ran into dinner where Susannah and McKensie made us beef with carrots, potatoes, and a delicious gravy. After dinner we all went about our chores as normal and awaited our pool time for some night swimming! Everyone ran full force into the pool as we haven’t seen one in a while. It was a fun way to blow off all the built up energy that we got from being on the boat and in classes all day. Towards the end Katie, Ollie, Dylan, and I sat by the fire pit and Sean decided to surprise us with smore’s from the hotel! It was the perfect way to wrap up a long a productive day. Shoutout to my family and dog, Edie- love and miss you guys and see you all soon!
