Thank you for sharing your story Erin
While I was getting my undergrad degree I also was obtaining my Third Mate's License. This meant I was going to to sea every summer on a training cruise to gain sea-time for my license. We did everything, navigation, maintenance, cleaning, lines, laundry, classes, watch, and much much more. I loved going to to sea, but my final cruise was harder to leave as I was leaving behind my fiancee at the time. This picture is of us just before the ship left and I was on stern line duty. It was very bittersweet I loved the sea, but to be gone for 3 months just broke my heart.
