"Aside from some engine problems on Monday the trip so far has been really fun! The crew is super cool and the other kids here are all pretty nice (even if Jack and Aiden never stop telling their weird bird joke!) Tomorrow we're sailing to Cuttyhunk which is about 4-5 hours away. I'm not totally sure what we'll be doing there but it'll probably be something fun.
I've seen and heard a ton of things that remind me of my Mom, too. Whether it's been a word or a picture, I've just felt super nostalgic through this whole trip. I talked to my aunt on Tuesday night, and she said my Mom would've been wicked proud of me for going on this trip and getting out of my comfort zone, which made me so happy to hear. It's almost 10pm, so I think I'm going to hit the hay soon. We have to leave around 6:30am tomorrow anyways, so going to bed sounds like a great idea!"
