First Day on the Pacific
Still trying to get acclimated to the time difference from home, I found myself wide awake at 6am. The ship was nearly silent apart from the wind and the waves. The night before, the line between sky and sea was gone. Blackness surrounded us with only the white caps created by the ship to pierce the void. Morning was quite different. As I peered off the starboard side towards the aft as we made our way WNW I saw perhaps one of the most beautiful sunrises I’ve ever seen – and the photo doesn’t due it justice. Later, as I sat at breakfast gazing across the vast water that now surrounds us, the occasional whale in the distance would blow water and air out into the sky. And, simply by chance, I caught sight of 4-5 dolphins running with us. Truly, this morning was made for me.
