One more day at sea in the last of the three long transits we have had on this exploration. We have entered the last third of the voyage, and today was our first full day in the Northern Hemisphere. The wind was warm, and the sea rolled calmly, pushing us forward on our journey to Cape Verde. We are all excited about the next destination, and at the same time, we are enjoying the process of getting there. Many guests walked around the decks, scouting for birds and whales. Others preferred to attend presentations in the lounge. Today’s presentations covered a wide range of topics, from whaling to 16th century explorers to the East India Company. As we cross these waters, learning about the people who crossed before us adds an extra layer of history to our journey.
