Souls on board

All students, faculty, and staff have safely arrived aboard SSV Robert C. Seamans. After a full day of ship orientation yesterday, today’s mission is to enjoy an umu—a traditional Samoan earth oven feast—with our good friends Reg and Su’a Fitiao, at their home in nearby Leone. It is a mission we gladly accept. Tomorrow, we will be underway, sailing on to Tonga. Great news: that’s what ships are for.

More about our adventures to come. Watch this space.
