Blue Planet

Author: Francis
Location: Underway to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean
Today the wind has been roaring and Argo has kept a constant speed of about 8.5 knots, which should allow us to arrive in Christmas Island tomorrow. It has been a beautiful day with the sun shining and the ocean glistening. We started out the day with a Marine Biology test followed by a viewing of the introduction to Blue Planet. Then as we came on deck we were reminded of how we are living in this blue planet by the sight of a whale 100 yards off the bow. The whale quickly disappeared and we went back to steering around fishing vessels. This was followed by a meal of chicken curry which required lots of focus to eat due to the steady rocking of the boat.
