Heyyo ship's log! Today was another wonderful day on the ol' schooner Roseway. We started our morning off at the usual 0715 to eggs and potatoes! Yum. We transitioned into an all hands sail back to Christiansted, St. Croix. The headsails were to be set and I hopped down into the forepeak to assist the chain as it settled into its home. I was called the "Chain Monkey". I came out covered in grime. We got after it back to our home on the mooring with high hopes for clear skies. The squall passed over as we pulled into St. Croix! We hopped into a sociology class with Eli, then navigation with Susz. After class we had some downtime, and Kara and I went out on the headrig to hangout and talk. It's so nice to be able to hang out on the bowsprit while everyone else is on the deck. Best spot on the boat for sure. I was welcomed by a Valentines day package from my Momma. Love you so much Mom! Call you soon, I promise. We wrapped up the night with a "Questions with the Cap" since he's doing a turnover soon. He is such an awesome guy and really knows how to get the crew in a mindset focused on the ship's well being first. It's going to be sad to see him go... Anyways! Time for movie night, people! Love you Steevo and Mama. Malcom and Billy y'all are cool too...

Best,

Sam Jewett
