Day 6 At Sea
Today was a fairly uneventful day. We had calm seas and fairly reasonable temperatures. I spent the day visiting with friends and planning my day tomorrow. Tomorrow morning I will get up early for our sail into Nanortalik, Greenland. This will be a very exciting day for me. I haven’t been back to Greenland since I left about 3 months after I was born ….. My Mother, Father, sister and I left Greenland almost exactly 60 years ago and now they are gone. There has been a very strong force calling me to return to Greenland to see firsthand the place where they lived and where I was born. After putting this trip off for a couple of years because of not wanting to go back to cold climates, here I am. I am very excited about tomorrow…. I think it will be an somewhat emotional journey into the past…..
