Day 15- Mural Day
Posted: Tue, Jul 23, 2013
Location: Little Harbor, Jost Van Dyke
We started off the day at 630 in order to start sailing back to Jost Van Dyke. We enjoyed a hearty breakfast of cereal and then went to the dock to go meet the kids. For the past 2 days we’ve been aiding a summer program for the local youth. Today we went on a town wide scavenger hunt around town to find various fruits and facts about the town. During the scavenger hunt, the group found an overly friendly puppy named Bullet who accompanied us back to Foxy’s where we watched a presentation about coral. Afterwords, we had some free time to walk around town. Charlie, a local boy named Rasheed and I got ice cream and returned Bullet. For lunch, we had sandwiches, French fries and deliciously spicy jerk chicken wings provided by Torin and the kitchen at Foxys. After lunch we broke up into groups and some people paddle boarded and played in the water with the kids. The other group went to paint a mural of mangroves on the side of the road. After all the days festivities were over, we dropped the kids back on the island and proceeded to have free time in the town where we all bought a ton of snacks. For dinner we motored to a BBQ at Sydney’s restaurant with Actionquest. After a great dinner, we all fell asleep very quickly!
