Day 7- The Calm After The Storm
Posted: Mon, Jul 15, 2013
Location: Vixen Point, Gorda Sound
The shipmates of Peeps Larou woke to the aromatic smells of French toast and fresh fruit salad at dawn. In anticipation of an early morning dive, all shipmates quickly donned their dive gear and dove in to complete their first fish ID dive. Shipmates enjoyed seeing a large tarpon and colorful cowfish. After the beautiful dive at Mountain Point, we took freshwater showers and we went ashore in Leverick Bay. We replenished our stockpiles of junk food and called home to reassure our parents that we’re having a good time. After lunch, Peeps took a short sail to Vixen Point. There, shipmates in the Dolphin program embarked upon a mangrove snorkeling expedition while Neptunes relaxed on the beach. When both programs reunited on the beach, shipmates of the Peeps engaged in a volleyball game against shipmates of Mahi Mahi. While the sun set over the water, all Action Quest shipmates prepared to party at a beach BBQ with DJ Heavy Beats. Shipmates aboard Peeps were perfectly prepared for the party, since after all, every day aboard Peeps is a party!
