#290 Getting To Semester At Sea

Our goal was simple.

Starting Saturday morning, we'd travel from Charlottesville to Manhattan and board the MV Explorer Sunday before it sailed for Halifax. Our helpers were Elizabeth, Amtrak, and Jenn. Elizabeth put us at Cville station promptly at an early hour. Thanks Elizabeth! Then Amtrak delivered us to NYC on time, no kidding. Then Jenn showed us her new home, her campus, and a fine dinner in Little Italy. Thanks Jenn!
Saturday night, our last night spent on land for weeks, we slept in Jenn's "penthouse" apartment just a few blocks from the MV Explorer.

Yours in getting Semester At Sea off to a great start,
