November 8, 1497: Yesterday was a day for great joy, we have finally reached the Cape of Good Hope. Once the port of the ship was pulled up to the dock at St. Helena’s Bay, much of the crew ran to get a taste of fresh water once again. After the crew had returned from getting water I ordered them to restock on all supplies. That night we sang and danced merrily, we had a huge feast, and for the first night in a long while we slept with full stomachs. Today we double checked on all of our supplies and set sail ready to take on the voyage of becoming the first Europeans to round the Cape of Good Hope and sail north towards India. The crews spirits had been restored, along with their strength, and I can feel that it will be smooth sailing from here unto India.
