MMA Day 7
06 August 2011 | Point Judith, RI
Coach here. Day 7 is here and we are currently anchored along the water breaks outside of Point Judith, Rhode Island. We’ve been sailing and touring the coast pretty hard the past few days, so we’re anchored here remaining on the boat just to relax and recharge. Chili is being made right now so I’m personally rather excited. We had left Woods Hole, RI after a big day of touring the oceanographic research facilities there yesterday evening. Pretty fascinating place. The Woods Hole Institute are the people responsible for finding the wreckage of the Titanic, as well as further developing deep sea exploration in addition to leading and researching ocean conservation efforts. If you’re looking to donate to make the world a better place, the institute at Woods Hole is a good way to go. The kids got to see and learn more about what it takes to make sure that the animals and creatures that inhabit the ocean as well as the sea itself will be here on the Earth for decades and centuries after we all are gone. Today was not without its challenges though. We finally got our first patch of rougher weather with some pretty good choppy waves for the 8 hours we were at sea today. There is some heavier rain on the horizon which is why we are docked and anchored. We are fine and the kids are doing amazing so worry not. We are in good hands out here and are pretty confident that we can take care of ourselves too. We’ve put so much ocean behind us and yet, it didn’t feel like a lot at all! I can see why some people marry themselves to the sea. It can be invigorating to say the least. Well, dinner is ready so I must be going. I’ll write more soon and before we know it, we’ll be in NYC. It’s going by so fast! Wish you all were here!
