On Sunday we went to visit the Logos Hope Ship. It is a cruise ship that travels the world, selling books at reasonable prices. It was a cloudy, drizzly day, which suited the visit, except for the mud. There weren’t too many people there, and we even got in free as we had to wait for them to clear the water on the deck.
Once inside, we were treated to a video about the ship. Staff are volunteers and come from 60 countries, including Germany, South Korea and South Africa. They are a Christian-based organization that dock in different countries for several weeks and also perform community service.
We got a lot of children’s books, including an atlas and dictionaries, as well as a couple of management books for my husband. It was a nice experience and my daughter certainly enjoyed being surrounded by both the ocean and all those books.
