Dumbo the heteropod

Hello, world! It’s been quite the busy past few weeks, what with sailing a boat across the Pacific and all. In just under two weeks, we have made the Seamans travel nearly 1,500 nautical miles. For a while there, I wasn’t completely sure if we would ever turn off the engine, but we’ve reached the Northeasterlies and haven’t dropped the sails since.

We’re finally underway and started our island-hopping snorkel adventure! Long days are ahead of us for sure: My day started this morning at 0530 with the dawn watch, and is filled with classes, rescue drills, and even a snorkel trip later.

After waking at the ripe hour of 1030 am, I crawled out of my bunk in Sleepy Hollow with squinty eyes, blinded by the daylight.
