I hardly know how to begin.have you ever seen something happen and, while you’re in the moment, while you’re witnessing it, you know that this, this is a thing that many, many people have never seen before, that this, this is a thing that you imagine you may never see again in my lifetime?

Now that we have come back into the California Current and gone past multiple marine sanctuaries, I find it very hard not to spend as much time as I can on deck.

Today was our relaxed full day anchored at Point Reyes. We’ve all had extra time to relax and reflect, our duties on watch consisting mostly of brief anchor checks, boat checks, and weather logging.

LAC high has mostly worn off. Crew morale was probably the highest it has been all trip. It was a lot of fun seeing people covertly bustling about to make their secret sailor gifts, with some being more tight-lipped about who they had, and others enlisting the help of their friends for information and whatnot.

Happy Tuesday (likely now Wednesday, maybe even later) to all of our avid readers! Today was a day like most, filled with watch, class, food, and classwork (as you might imagine). Today, I had afternoon watch, which meant a long night’s sleep after an eventful evening watch last night.

Happy Local Apparent Boxing Day!

Today is Local Apparent Christmaka! A watch had dawn watch this morning, and night watch tonight, so it was extremely temping to sleep through the whole day, but I’m so glad I didn’t. I am so grateful for the group that we have on this ship and the effort they put into arranging this holiday with very limited resources after the decision to have a Christmas in July was suggested only a few days ago.

It was the night before (Local Apparent) Christmas and all the ship, not a sailor was snoring, not even a bit.
