Location: Great Harbor, Peter Island
Another early morning at AQ commenced with a 6:30am wake-up. The chefs brought out cereal during our short motor back to West End, where it all began. We had a filling breakfast at D’Best Cup. The hash browns and bacon were delicious. The rest of the time at West End was spent at the grocery store and various shops while staff replenished food supplies for each boat as soon as we were about to embark to GHP, Sam told us that we were to get Love to GHP without his assistance. We only had 5 questions to ask. Fritz, Oscar, Jimmy, and I planned to motor upwind until we wouldn’t hit St. John in our close haul. We raised the main sail and unfurled the jib where Fritz and I took turns on the helm and Aaron helped with the jib when we tacked. Finally we made it to Peter Island. We moored right next to the RMS Rhone anchor. We went for a dive and found the anchor which was completely encrusted with coral. At our safety stop on the mooring line we used Francesca’s GoPro to film our group Harlem Shake. Jimmy brought the unicorn mask and Oscar took a hat. It was a blast. After our dive, we showered while our air compressor ran and caught up on logging dives. We filmed some testimonials on AQ and made dinner and we were anchored. Now during cleanup, we are joyfully playing music while we wait for Sam to return, watching the sun set just beyond the barge. These 17 days have been full of adventures, and I cannot wait for what else is to come in the next few.
