Day 1: The Island

After several days at sea, we finally spotted the island on the horizon approximately ten nautical miles south of our original estimation. Our small crew was getting eager to set foot on solid ground, and we made good time approaching shore. Coming from the North, there was a beautiful beach nestled between less friendly cliffs on either side. We decided to anchor and set up camp here, even though I would have preferred we circle the island to scout for the best landing possible. It was going to be dark soon I suppose. Once on shore, I immediately had the intern, Otis, set up our radio communication and contact headquarters. We celebrated briefly before calling it an early night in our new bunks. There is much to do tomorrow, after all.
