Around 8 a.m., I saw the first piece of land I’ve seen since the ship left Halifax, Canada. We passed the Azores, a group of islands in the Atlantic Ocean. Some students woke up extra early just to see the islands and take photographs. It’s funny what people get excited about when they see nothing but blue ocean for a while. I found the Azores on my way to breakfast. I have to admit, it was nice to see the islands — just there in the middle of the ocean… like our ship.
