Moloka’i: A New Island to Explore
Today we awoke to the ship being anchored just outside of Kaunakaka’i Harbor on the island of Moloka’i. This was the last island on our itinerary we had yet to visit, which made our 0630 wakeup call slightly more tolerable. The prospect of spending an entire day on land after 7 straight days at sea also provided extra incentive to get the day started.

This morning we parted ways with the beautiful island of Dominica. Although it’s exciting to be underway again and fall back into our “normal” routines, the last few days at anchor were wonderful. On Tuesday I celebrated my 21st birthday exploring Roseau with friends and hiking to Trafalgar Falls. I was also able to phone home to my parents and sister, an opportunity which I now realize that I often take for granted when in the States.

Little Bay, Montserrat
“Please be aggressive when you wake me up for mid-watch. I’ll need it.”
That’s what I told Colin and the B Watch crew before going to bed last night. We had spent the past day and a half sailing under the wind/wave protection of St. Kitts and Nevis, and I knew that my C Watch crew would be responsible for launching a potentially tumultuous journey to Montserrat. at 2300 at night. Shout-out to my mom Kazumi and sister Lisa, who know how slow I can be to get going in the morning!
