‘I had a complete change of attitude’

“I hate this trip,” said my boat mate as we sailed along the Maine coast. 

I, too, hated this trip. The scenery may have been beautiful, but salt and water was all I’d been smelling for the past three days. My stomach felt like it was being mixed like a pot of soup, and I was a bit scared. 

On this particular day, I had to navigate from one point to the next on our journey, and we had to sail pretty far—maybe six miles. The waves were big, and it was very foggy. Our thirty-foot-long boat seemed so tiny in the churning ocean, and I felt super anxious to get back onto safe, dry land. The water was so choppy and the boat so rocky that all four of us on the boat got seasick.
