"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

Well -- we were supposed to set sail today for Cumberland Island, but Mother Nature had different plans for us. The rain and wind have forced us to come up with an alternative schedule for the day. Luckily the friendly people at the Maritime Center here in Charlestown have provided us with a large classroom! The students have already had an English class, science class, and now they are in navigation and seamanship class where they are learning how to splice, whip the ends of rope, and stitch canvas for their home made ditty bags! Midterms are around the corner, so I think the students are welcoming the study time with open arms.
