June 8, Thursday
Today we're heading towards Nuuk, Greenland, our final port call of this trip. Susan and I are sad to be leaving the Healy and her crew. The past two weeks have been a wonderful adventure for us! We've been to one of the most beautiful and pristine places on earth, learned so much about science and the Arctic, and had the chance to work together on this project. But the most wonderful part of our adventure has been the people we've met. The scientists and the crew of the Healy have been so nice to us. They have been incredibly generous with their time - teaching us, answering our questions, and sharing their work and their lives with us. We'll miss them.
This will be our last journal entry. Tomorrow we'll arrive in Nuuk, where we'll catch our flights home. Two other teachers, Jay Schauer from Oregon and Todd Hindman from Alaska, will take our place on the Healy for the next two weeks. You can follow Jay and Todd's adventures through their journals on the TEA website.
As our final farewell, we want to share some photos of our favorite moments on the Healy. We hope you like them.
Thanks for following our adventures. It was great to have you on board!
