 What I DON’T LIKE

  •  Typical sea day – have watched everything on TV and getting bored

FUN-fact – Greenland is not a continent because it is part of the North American tectonic plate.

More FF – We crossed the Denmark Strait today which stretches 300 miles to Iceland and connects the Arctic Sea to the Atlantic Ocean.
