Last night, we were playing kick ball on the basketball court. When I was kicking, I kicked the ball right through a hole in the net, into the ocean. They staff is working on fixing that hole. Today, we arrived at Halifax at eight o’clock in the morning. When we stopped, all the birds and moths and other animals that accidentally rode with us from Virginia to Halifax got off the ship in Canada. It feels good not to need sea legs to walk in a straight line anymore. Later today, we will probably get off of the ship, and see Halifax. In the harbor that we are in, there are ducks swimming around in the water. The weather is incredibly sunny, but it is cold enough that we are all wearing sweatshirts. Today is the day that the college students’ parents are boarding and touring. Tomorrow the college students are boarding, and at night, we leave for Spain, and we get there in seven days. That is one of the longest stretches between ports in the whole trip. The longest is eleven days between Kobe and Honolulu at the very end of our trip.
