The boat never leaves the harbor, but the kids spend a night taking turns on watch and have different jobs to keep the ship running. ;) Vera had some luck and was given the 4-6am watch. Therefore, she got to sleep from about 10:30-3:45. I was not so lucky with the 2-4am shift. I think I slept a total of 3 hours. It was worth it. A very neat adventure!
Vera signing on for the voyage.
Okay, Vera is not in this picture, but cool to see the galley. It is updated and the galley crew is in charge of the meals for the voyage.
The water picture is one of my favorite shots.
Just to get a feel for where we slept. I should mention, we "set sail" during a heatwave in Santa Barbara and sleep was just a dream. It was hot and sweaty in those bunks. I lucked out and slept on that bench where everyone is sitting during the sea chantey session of the night.
