We started the day off with an early morning breakfast. After we finished our food and all of our chores we departed for New Bedford around 9:00 A.M and got to the New Bedford Whaling museum at 10:00 A.M. While there we roamed around looking at tools used in whaling, whale bone, etc.

As we sail further from Orona, the ocean around us begins to grow and consume the horizon once more.

Sunday Funday

Kat Seabury & Brooke Cain, Norfolk Aggie & Ballard Highschool

SEA Semester

Today was the first non-academic day of the program and of course everyone was very excited! We started the day at 9:45, a major difference from the usual 7:30. Jamie also made us a wonderful brunch and we left soon after to go candlepin bowling, which has smaller pins and balls.

“Did you see anything cool?”

Last night we sailed away from our second port stop, the island of Orona. Of the past 10 days, 6 have been spent snorkeling, swimming, or exploring Orona and Kanton. After a group of snorkelers returns to the ship, one of the first questions always asked by those already on board is “Did you see anything cool?”
