Two-Years Ago (22-January-2016) — Pacific Ocean

Gone to See the World. Semester at Sea Spring 2016 Voyage on the MV World Odyssey. Day 17: Crossing the Pacific Ocean.

I woke up at 05:00. We experienced heavy wind and waves all night. The aft deck was open, and even though it was still dark I could see some color in the clouds developing. Dawn and sunrise turned out to be “Some Kind of Wonderful”
