We’re the new crew
With our how-do-you-dos
Our uncertainties
And our good-to-meet-yous.
We’ve thrown ourselves together
Voluntarily
Here in Oban.
It’s a kind of pilgrimage
A blind date
With the ocean.
Of course, we’ll just be
Skirting
Coasting
Hugging the shores,
Focused on getting to know
The place, the ship, each other,
Ourselves
And what we are doing
To the sea
With our thoughtless, throwaway pollution.
We don’t know much
But our eyes and ears, our senses
Are ready to be opened,
Let’s go!
