Souls on Board

We've have begun to settle into underway life on the ship. The watch rotates on an 18 hour schedule that leaves us with little time to hang out. Despite this at any time you can walk throughout the ship and find people reading books, playing cards and talking. If you hang out on deck we have already seen many birds, a shark, beautiful sunsets and sunrises.

    The Michigan contingent especially enjoyed this blog entry, perhaps for obvious reasons. Everything sounds so interesting on this voyage!
