Day 4

I'm starting to become familiar with the stars. I've learned some new constellations: Scorpio, Libra, Pegasus, but even the ones that stand on their own are becoming reliable companions during watch. The first two nights didn't have a moon, but now it's a glowing crescent that forms an infinite pathway of light through the water behind us. We're going south. It's not supposed to be this way, but the weather isn't following its normal patterns, which is frustrating. Luckily, Herby has studied so much that he knows what to do. Moral is low when the wind dies. Herby and I are trying to stay positive. Frank is very impatient, but perfectly pleasant when we are moving at an acceptable pace. I think seeing his attitude helps me improve mine in order to make up for it. My biggest regret is not downloading more podcasts.
