To start off we began the day with an amazing breakfast of scrambled eggs an blueberry muffins. At around 9am we began our dive, where we practiced skills such as finding our neutral buoyancy. On the dive we saw a spotted eagle ray and several spider crabs. We also saw a huge lobster that was hiding under an outcropping of fire coral, which I unfortunately brushed up against. After we surfaced we started rotations, which is where individual boats take turns doing things like waterskiing and wakeboarding. I was able to get up on the kneeboard several times. Sam was able to pull of several 360s, which was very impressive. Our boat then took the Picos, which are two person sailboats. I have promised myself to buy one as soon as I can. When we got back to our boat we started the “bleach party.” Basically we sprayed everything with bleach and scrubbed it down. This took a very long time; our boat wasn’t exactly in tip top shape. Afterwards we had an awesome dinner of tomato stroganoff. Then I, the skipper of the day, asked the question “what is the meaning of your life; as an individual?” This question generated some very interesting answers. Every day here in the BVI flies by, and I am not looking forward to going back home to reality.
