We are finally there and I can see Cape verde, I can’t believe we made it after seven days at sea! So here is the lowdown, the first day out it was super calm and I was listening to music, dancing and climbing the mast (the big stick in the middle of the boat). On the second day it was a little rougher then the first but we put the fishing lines out and it wasn’t too bad. The second day always sucks, you’re not yet in a grove. The only thing very good about the second day was the lasagna, it was probably the second time we had found ricotta cheese and my Mom made my favorite meal. It was good, good, good. On the third day it mainly the same but I got into a grove and I felt like I could go down stairs without throwing up and I was able to get some legos out and do some reading. Wow, on the fourth day I got a great wake up call. I woke up to a bunch of screaming and I looked outside to see if something happened and Zander was hanging from the bosuns chair over the side of the boat! it was awesome. I did it too, so fun! Fifth day same thing, read for 30 minutes, watch some TV, do some homework, do a watch (stay outside and make sure we don’t hit anything), put the fishing lines out, have dinner, read more, watch another movie, take the fishing lines in so we don’t catch a fishermen’s net and then we go to bed. Sixth day all the same again nothing special although we were getting excited because it was the second to last day.
Finally, I see it, I see it, land! We are finally on land and it’s so exciting, no more rolling, no more not wanting to eat because you don’t feel good and no more wind!
