Today is the sixth day of our trip, we've got four more until we're all back home. At the start of our day we began anchored at the Isle of Shoals. We first got ready to load into the small boats and motored over to Duck Island and saw the cutest little baby seals - even if not all of them were young, they were all adorable. We counted the number of specific seal species to aid in research. There were quite a few, following us too; they surely were curious about what we were as they poked their little tiny heads out the ocean top. Coming back to Roseway we were met with a swim call, which was certainly a tad bit colder even if others don't agree. After we dried off, we ate lunch and left for Portsmouth. Before our arrival a nice storm brushed into our path - some beautiful lightning flashed in front of us. We as students had to go below into the salon and wait for it to pass. Quickly, it did - and it was time for dinner. The day will shortly pass, with only three more days. We will see you all soon. Miss you :)
