World Cup and Tie-Dye
Since we didn’t have any classes today, we all enjoyed an extra two hours of sleep this morning. Once we were awake we had frittatas, bacon, and fruit for breakfast. After performing our daily chores, some people headed up to the Madden Center to watch the World Cup Final, while others remained at the houses to tie-dye.

Discussing Whaling, Building Boats, and a Beach Cleanup
Today we woke up, got ready, and had breakfast. Then we went to Oceans and Society and started research for the whaling debate. After that we had lunch and then went to our Racing beach cleanup. It was really awesome doing something to support healthy oceans.

What a Fun Day!
After breakfast this morning we got on the “big yellow school bus,” and headed to New Bedford.
After a long one hour ride, we arrived at the New Bedford Whaling Museum where we learned about whales and some artifacts, which were shared with us by the helpful staff working in and amongst the museum.

First matter of business: tour the SEA ship, the Corwith Cramer. There was so much to look at. The laboratory (where students and crew studied microscopic plankton and water chemistry), the focs’l (the front of the ship), the main salon (eating, studying, and sleeping room), the galley (kitchen), the aft cabin (the captain’s quarters,) and the quarter deck (helm). We ran into multiple crew members who greeted us and taught us a bit about the ship, such as learning about the navigation technology and traditional charts which are still used today. It was extremely interesting, and took up a good two hours of the town visit.

Happy Birthday Jess!
Today was Jess’ birthday: Happy Birthday Jess!
After yesterday’s humidity breaking rain, we all woke up to our first chilly morning. Convinced that being awake wasn’t actually so bad by a warm breakfast of egg and sausage breakfast sandwich, we completed our daily chores and attended our watch meetings, where we learned reef knots and bowlines, before heading to class.
