When they were going to travel across an enormous ocean which had who knows what in it, it frightened them. They believed mystical creatures lurked under the deep sea waiting to eat them alive. They feared endlessly, that a ferocious storms would wreck their boats. For months and months they sat on their cramped boat fearing the unknown and what would happen to them. Doubt filled their heart as they set sail to the new world and what it held for them.
