Hi Everyone,Â Â Welcome to day 22 of our voyage. Today being Sunday we enjoyed another Sunday routine which meant that the majority of us enjoyed a well deserved sleep in and those that had the morning watch got to jump back into their bunks after breakfast.Â Â Talking of food tonight was Pizza Night!! And Chef Aaron and his assistants Fiona and Sam really put on a pizza feast that any Italian Restaurant would have been proud of.Â Â This was followed by a birthday celebration for Krystin who turned 26 today.Â Â Krystinâ€™s Birthday Cake was baked by Fiona who did a fantastic job especially considering it was baked in a galley where everything has a tendency to move with the motion of the ship.Â Â Â Â It is interesting to see how the Crew spend their Sundays; some like to sleep, some prefer to sit down and watch a movie, some exercise and some like Hannah take the time to sit down and reflect on were they are and to write a beautiful Poem which she kindly agreed to share with all of us on tonightâ€™s Log.Â Â Until tomorrow, take care.Yours AyeÂ Â Captain GavÂ Â Hannahâ€™s PoemÂ Â The sea welcomes me like an old friendÂ She comforts me gently wrapping herself around my fragile bodyÂ I am nothing to herÂ One speck, one tiny miteÂ Yet she cradles me, gathering me in her armsÂ I glide across her mirrored surfaceÂ One windswept sailor on a lonely deckÂ She accepts my secretsÂ Without query or hesitationÂ Instead, she smiles warmlyÂ And shows me much in her depthsÂ Who I was, who I am,Â Who I might becomeÂ But there are always two seasÂ The one I sail and the one inside myselfÂ This sea has no chart, nor lights to guide meÂ Yet, they are drawn togetherÂ Like pieces of a dark endless puzzleÂ The sea welcomes me like an old friendÂ And as I glide over her depths, finallyÂ I know that I am home.Â Â Â (Written By Hannah)”Â
