On the morning of Wednesday, April 10, 1912, the boat train was getting loaded as Nellie Becker leaned over her 12-year-old daughter, "Ruth." The boat train, is a train leading to Southampton where the Titanic lay. Before sailing, some of the second class passengers were able to tour the first class area. Once everyone was aboard the Titanic, the whistles blew and the Titanic was towed away by the Tug "Vulcan." The Titanic's close encounter with the New York was a big hit. It even got in the newspaper the next day. The Titanic sailed for one day and stopped at Queenstown. Queenstown didn't have enough dock space for the Titanic so it had to anchor off of Roach's Point. Once the Titanic was out at sea, people started going around the ship. They went to the bar, the decks and some even slept a little. At night, people went to bed or they went to the lounge to play cards. Some people stayed up all night and played cards all night and some of them went to sleep like the others. The next day people slept in because it was a nice vacation. After people got up, they had a nice big breakfast in the restaurant. The weather was beautiful. John Jacob Astor (the richest man in the world at that time) was on the Titanic. But they Didn't know that they were going twenty-two knots in icy way as some crew called it. Icy way is an area along the Atlantic trench. It is made up of many ice fields with big icebergs that break off from Greenland. Not only that,but some ice warnings wern't given to the bridge and the ones that made it to the bridge didn't get much attention.
