|Newport in sight!|
My time on the big blue has come to an end. We just arrived in a beautiful fall day to Rhode Island, Newport, yesterday after two weeks of exploring and transiting up long the US east coast. This is Okeanos home port which she has been waiting 2 years to arrive to (long story apparently) so everyone was really exited to get here. Myself I was mainly tired as I had to extend my night shift to cover another day, although the excitement snuck up on me too eventually.

Looking back we were lucky to escape the Atlantic in the middle of the hurricane season with just a few rocky days. The work onboard have followed a well organized daily routine that have also provided time to get to know the ships crew better (aka daily Call of duty tournaments), fishing off the stern and watching important movies such as "life aquatic", highly recommended if you have not seen it.
