#985 Arriving in a new port after days at sea

It is so nice being at sea, away from distractions so you can gain some clarity and do some good ol’ fashioned thinking. And yet despite all your deep thoughts, you can’t help but be excited  upon arrival in a new port after a few days on the water. There is the running around to make the ship presentable- harbor furls on the sails, brass shined and everything ship shape. But all the work just makes you that much more anxious to get on land.

Maybe you’ve been to this port before and are already plotting out your itinerary, starting with the second hand clothing store, followed by the great little coffee shop and the book store. Or, it’s your first time here and you don’t even know where to begin, but you’ve already been hitting up your shipmates for some ideas.  Whatever happens, it’s a new place, a new adventure and that’s why you signed up to be on a ship in the first place. Because discovering, or even re-discovering,  a new place is awesome.

(Thanks, Jennifer,  for the idea!)

Have an idea or a story you want to share? Email it to me at erin@sailtraining.org and I’ll add it to the blog with props to you.
