Another beautiful day and another beautiful sunrise and sunset. Out here in the middle of the ocean, these are my favorite thing to move relative to… that and 6 meals a day!
The seas have been laying down a bit, making working and moving around the vessel a bit easier. The Main Engine has been off for a good chunk of the last two days, which is nice for the engineer. Makes my world a bit quieter and cooler.
I had the pleasure of working with Isaiah and Jessica today. Each day I get to work with two students, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. Some days its exciting work, some days it’s a bit more mundane. Today Isaiah and I moved a reverse osmosis unit, which we use to desalinate sea water into drinking water. Jessica and I spent the afternoon removing one of the exhaust fans that is connected to the engine room. I am grateful for the experience.
Had my first flying fish sighting today. It’s an amazing thing watching a fish fly, and for such a long distance, must have gone nearly 100ft! I’m pretty sure the boat spooked it. I have seen birds follow the boat waiting for us to scare up the flying fish, then diving after them. I like playing spot the flying fish, who can see it first, me or the bird.
The day was capped up with a beautiful sunset and a delicious lasagna meal prepared by Chris and our steward Kim….(meal 5 of the day).
Peace Be the Journey!
