We had a rough start to our day we woke up at around 12:30am to find it pouring outside where we were all sleeping. We all ran down below and ran into our cabins to fall asleep. We woke up at around 7 o’clock and Mia and Santiago started making breakfast, which was scrambled eggs and muffins. After a delicious meal we had to do the dishes like all the shipmates do at every meal. I of course had to clean the egg pot. Mia cooked 4 dozen eggs so she had to use the biggest pot. I had to scrub my hardest to get all of it off and it took forever to clean the pot. After cleanup we got dressed and got on the dinghy to go to Spindrift to start our first real open water dive. We got to Spindrift to get our diving gear on. Finally we got into the water and practiced our surface skills. After we finished our surface skills we started descending down to the bottom (which is about 30 feet down). We had an amazing dive and started to ascend up to the surface. We took off all our gear and headed back to our boat and had a great lunch of tortilla soup. While putting the anchor up we spotted a small sea turtle. It was so, so, so cute! We started sailing towards Peter Island and had the best time of our lives. We got to Peter Island and took a shower. After that we had cheddar broccoli pasta and played mafia. After a great day was done we all went to bed.
