A giant, goofy family

Courtney Boucher, A-watch, Sewanee, The University of the South

width="1500"

Although my name is Courtney, I now respond to “Beans” and “Beenzie” too. There’s a long story as to why, but it is one of the many examples of how the Cramer has made everyone act as a giant, goofy family. While other blogs have talked about the ins and outs of watch, meals, and bunks, I want to talk about the entertainment, in both its goofy and familial forms.

Studying or Snorkeling?

Valeriia Vakhitova, Middlebury College

Today we all said ‘goodbye’ to Corwith Cramer. I could see her proudly standing in the golden waters of St. Croix from the window of my plane: that was my last sunset with her. I believe not a single person remained unchanged through the program. But it might be a little too early to see the difference yet.

The Island Life

Daniel Karparis, University of Maine Orono

Study Abroad at Sea

Ahoy and land ho from Grenada! My name is Dan Karparis and I am currently a junior at the University of Maine in Orono, where it is most certainly not 29°C and sunny, sorry not sorry. I am currently writing this blog for December 3rd in the library of the SSV Corwith Cramer on December 4th at around 2100 (only eight hours after leaving the beautiful and friendly island of Grenada).

Final Days

Much has happened for the Corwith Cramer and her crew over the weekend.  We shifted anchorages to Rendezvous Bay, held final Oceanography Presentations and celebrated everyone’s creativity with a Cramer Art gallery.  That was Saturday!

Goodbye Jamaica!!

Allyssa Stevenson, A Watch, American University

width="800"

At this moment in time, I am certain of three things:

1) There is no better place to watch the sunset than on the ocean, - with friends - on top of the Elephant Table.
2) Community is everything.
3) Ginger beer is (and always has been) better than Ting.

Hello from the beautiful city of Port Antonio, Jamaica!  This is our second day docked in Errol Flynn marina.  Yesterday, classmates spent the day exploring markets and restaurants and sampling Jamaica’s famous jerk chicken.  Today was filled with exciting activities and exploring even more new places.

C283 Caribbean Reef Expedition - Fond Farewells

Douglas Nemeth, Captain

width="600"

Coming in, secure in the harbor as we are now, generates a comfortable feeling for mariners. We are no longer subjected to the whims of the ocean, the motion of the vessel and other associated voyaging challenges.

Too Much to Say

Ale Tejeda, Colorado College

width="600"

I began to write this multiple ways. This beginning paragraph I write the dawn of the 22nd, having watched the orange moon set and the sun slowly become lighter, because I needed to take pause last night. I have so many tangents running in my mind, so many things I want to say about today, yesterday, and every day since I showed up late one night in Woods Hole that I can’t keep them straight and my tired eyes are making matters more blurry.
