Souls on Board

Hi everybody,

Today, our departure from Bermuda was delayed due to tropical storm Ana, which is traveling up the east coast of the United States.  Captain believes that we will be better off in port tonight, waiting for the storm to move further along its cruise track.  With this delay the group was given a chance to finish up on the preparations need for departure.  Also, the science groups were given time to catch up on their project work and talk to Amy and Laura about their progress. Team Phyllosoma has caught up on most of their project and are ready for the second leg of the journey.  All of the students were also given 2 hours of free time to get any last minute internet or phone calls out of the way. I gave my final farewells to my parents and decided to wander around the island and explore some areas that I haven’t seen. Bermuda is a beautiful island with a lot to see in a condensed 22 square miles and I have only seen a small portion of it.

Even though I loved Bermuda, I still wish we could get underway and start sailing again.   I’m starting to hate being stationary and wanting to begin the last leg of the adventure.  This is partially due to the fear of being stationary too long will make me lose my sea legs and become more susceptible to sea sickness again. I’m also so excited and can’t wait to begin this last portion of the trip, but I know in the back of my mind that the trip will end soon.  Which makes me sad. I will miss my shipmates. We have bonded over the past few weeks.  With this in mind, I know that nothing good lasts forever, but that these experiences will stay with me and have helped shape me into who I am today.

From the beautiful island of Bermuda,
Ryan
