It’s almost Christmas and our Chief Cook Laura came up with a plan to have a “Secret Santa” exchange on the ship, which is really a great idea, but didn’t stay secret for long! By the end of the day almost everyone knew who everyone had as their “Secret Santa.” What I think is most comical is that everyone was asking each other what they should make for their oh so very “Secret Santa.” We only have six more days til Christmas. It’s going to be so much fun celebrating with all the new friends I made, but I’ll be thinking of my mom and friends back home in Holland and will sure miss them.
I'm having a great time on the Steve Irwin. I'm surrounded by incredible people who are all here for the same reason as I am: to help protect our oceans and save whales from the illegal whaling. We are ready to rock and roll in the Southern Ocean!
