Horn Blower Trip
A normal CTE day is walking to the mast center at the beginning of sixth period, meeting in the classroom and talking about what our agenda is. Today was a special day though. We met outside and immediately started walking to the ferry in a rush. As we were walking, Gino and I were having a conversation about what we could be doing today. We looked towards the seaport and saw Wavetree’s head sails up and realized where we were going today.
On our ferry ride Captain Aaron mustered us up and told us the plan. We realized we were completely wrong. The plan for today was a site visit, just not to Wavetree. We went to pier 15 and took a ride on one of Hornblowers boat. We all gathered our tickets and went straight up the stairs to the wheelhouse. There we met up with Captain Jose. He said hi to us and gave us a breakdown on what we were going to do today. It was a tour of lower Manhattan on the water. We all went our separate ways to explore the boat. As we went to explore we saw all of their safety equipment and compared how it differs from ours. Everything was pretty much the same just on a wider scale.
As we were on our way back Kim took the helm. At that moment I was scared for my life! Just playing, Kim did great at the helm. Following that Captain Jose took the helm and docked the boat and that was the end of our voyage. It was a great day!
