The Sound School
Multi-day Transit from Boston to New Bedford
Day 4 of 4

We came to the dockside at New Bedford State Pier at midday in the midst of a strong wind and drizzle. After getting together for a final departure from the ship, The Sound School was on up into the New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park to explore, this time by land. Now, there's one hardy crew for you! Great trip!

To The Tune  "I Say a Little Prayer":

I woke up this morning
found it was raining outside
I put a little rain gear on
Have Breakfast Breakfast
oatmeal and bagels thank you Laurie.

For ever and ever you'll stay in our heart
Thank you Laurie
We're cleaning and scrubbing we're cleaning bunks out ...

A Watch had the duty of creating the web write-up while we made our final approach to the dock at State Pier in New Bedford.  A successful circumnavigation around Cape Cod brought everyone together as "The Crew.'  Though the weather was a little frightful we survived and had a great time.

The high wind and rain was enough to indicate the cancellation of the evening sail for members. So the Ernestina is at dock now for several days.
