This morning all the crew that could, slept late and has continued to have a relaxing Sunday–whenever there isn’t a campaign on board or work that has to be done, the crew is given a half day on Saturday and a full day off on Sunday. While the rest of the crew is catching up on sleep from an exhausting couple of months up in the Arctic, mine’s been adjusting to being out at sea. With three days of rolling seas, it’s incredible how exhausting it is to just keep your balance throughout the day.
Next up, I continued to curl up with my book in the lounge for the next few hours until joining a few of the crew members in watching the movie Hysteria. Essentially about the invention of the vibrator as the cure for women’s hysteria, it was even more entertaining to watch in the company of the Captain, first mate, chief engineer and bosun.
