Souls on Board

All blogs from C-306

We journeyed forth upon the sea,

Our eager crew in watches three:

To sail the waves, to tow for sci,

To plumb the depths, and watch the sky.

A week we sailed, and now we’ve found

Our happy ship is landward bound:

Our newest task is to explore

The reef along the island shore!

We’ll swim and sample, snorkeling down;

A week near land where fish abound.

Then with our data we’ll leave shore,

Returning to the sea once more.

Such excitement in the air –

Swim call? I’ll see you there!

[Aida Morgan-Russell, 3rd Mate, C Watch]

P.S. Happiest of birthdays to our shipmate Blake!
