Location: Mountain Point, Virgin Gorda
Today we woke up and got sailing pretty early. We all had a quick shower of Hibiclens and then a breakfast of oatmeal. We were given half and hour to get on shore at Leverick Bay, and we all scrambled about towards the market to stock up on snacks. Before we knew it, it was time to head back to Bella C. to set sail for Anegada. Al told us we were in charge and we had to get ourselves and direct Bella C. towards Anegada. While on our way there Doug spotted dolphins riding with the bow. There were three adults and one younger small dolphin. We were all really excited to see some dolphins and were just about ready to jump in the water with them! We ate lunch on board after we anchored offshore of Anegada’s beautiful white sand beaches. After a meal of sandwiches and interesting conversations about bologna, we took dinghies to shore. There we played on the beach, went for walks, tossed a frisbee, and dug a huge hole (which I was later buried in). We all had a lot of fun hanging out together and with a few other people from other boats. Now we are back on Bella C. sailing back to Virgin Gorda. Everyone is exhausted and can be seen lying on deck in the sun. This is the life! And it’s nice and sunny today too! Fingers crossed it stays this way. Tonight is Mexican night which we are all looking forward to (especially Al). That’s all for now!
