Today was a celebration for many things, Good Friday, the start of spring, and Mr.Faust-Allnut¡¦s (2nd Mate) birthday. Today everyone just seemed to be in a very joyous and energetic mood, which put a lot of positive energy into the atmosphere. It probably had to do with the fact that we would soon be arriving in Vieques after a long upwind passage.
During class today, the students who studied Vieques gave their country report. The report included some very interesting history and cultural facts.
During lunch we had the lovely opportunity to see Angelina¡¦s shoe drop into the soup, what a funny site to see. The next morning we saw the beautiful scenery of Vieques. At last we are on land. We are all so excited to take showers and see what this beautiful island has to offer to the Tall Ship Semester for Girls 2008.
Bon Voyage ƒº
