Sails, Soap, and Showers

On day 10 of our journey sailing skills were the focus. In preparation for the upcoming examination we headed towards open water to practice drills. The weather was good with only light showers in the morning. Each of the watches is quickly learning to work together and all are able to surmount any challenge we are presented with. The Carinas are heading off to their night dive soon, and in our down time the Vegas might make some brownies! No matter where we are in the BVI, shower time is always amusing on the Soul Train. Today it wasn’t the act of getting clean, so much as the dive contests and throwing soap at each other that made our shower memorable. At one point Greer was so covered in soap and shampoo that the ocean looked like a bubble bath after she jumped in. Everyone is up on deck now, talking and getting ready for various activities (diving, brownies, etc). In a matter of hours we will have made up the blue lagoon (our below deck sleeping area), piled on, and be fast asleep. Another day awaits us.
