Rain, Rain Go Away

And so, our journey slowly comes to a close. We started our morning with some warm pancakes prepared by our lovely chefs. Once finished we set sail to Wreck Alley. Although the weather was looking a tad iffy we continued our journey to scuba dive. On our way over we had to compete with the whirling wind and flashed of rain pour. But no fear, we got there safe and sound. All of the shipmates came together to pull in the jib. When our catamaran was finally settled into our destination everyone quickly set up their dive gear. Our one lonely Neptune left us for his other voyages. The Dolphins readied their cameras for their underwater photography certification. The rescues set out on a mission to find a hidden object. Luckily the weather allowed us to have a fantastic dive and scrumptious chicken salad for lunch. Once everyone had eaten, Rescues went back underwater to continue their search for the missing object. Victory was achieved within a few minutes. Quickly after, the rescue team was introduced to their first scenario. Once all the madness was over we set sail again for the Bight. Poor Zodiac (our beloved dinghy) could not hold on any longer and let go of Panasea. Ben, the skipper of the good ship, raced to its rescue where he almost went down with the boat. But, everyone safely arrived at the Bight. We hung out for a bit while the staff left for a quick meeting. For dinner we munched on broccoli cheddar pasta. Afterwards we shared the squeeze question “what is the first thing you’re going to do when you get home.” We finally finished our evening by writing cards to everyone to log all the memories we have created over the last three weeks. This is truly the trip of a lifetime.
