The queen has approved of our voyage and we just left the port in Palo, Spain and are heading for the Canaries. Yet I can't help but feel a little homesick on my first voyage. We checked our supplies today and they are perfect! All of our crew is good, and we are pretty sure we are on the right track. We have been on this boat a week and I'm starting to get a little tired of it. But that doesn't matter because as long as we are okay, I'm fine. Spain doesn't exactly have the best boats, nor the best sailors, but our food and water, navigation tools, and maps are great. I think the voyage is going well so far and I hope it stays that way. All I care about, though is that everyone gets there safely. I thought I saw a giant sea monster earlier, it was big and it was going under the boat, then I saw it come up and had its tail splash in the water and it shook the boat, we were worried until it swam away. The weather was great today we had good wind and we were moving fast, nothing too bad has happened on the boat, and we are sleeping fine, although I have heard that it only gets worse and worse but I hope that doesn't happen. I don't prefer the food we have on board, in fact, I actually dislike it, but it looks like we will have to get used to it as it's the only food we have. I don't really like our living spaces there's water dripping from the ceiling and actually I'd rather sleep on the deck, instead of the overcrowded living space down below. I'm never sure who to trust, because most of our sailors are criminals, some you can trust and some you can't I do have a few I don't think I can trust the ones you don't see much onboard. My job as the navigator and ships surgeon is not very hard, I wish I was captain though, all the gold and riches we'd get it would be amazing, even just thinking about it makes me feel better.
