Today has been the hardest day of the whole trip. This morning we went to Road Town to give our time to VISAR (Virgin Islands Search and Rescue). We helped them with various tasks around the building. Some of us were painting in a bright orange enormous container while others were cutting the trees, moving the gravel and weeding the grass. It turned out to be great teamwork and we were a lot quicker than we expected to be. At lunchtime we all got the chance to have pizza, which was very good after the working morning! In the afternoon, the group was split out in different activities. Some went to monitor mangroves, or dredge the channel while others continued what we were doing in the morning. At the end of the day, we sailed to Road Town and Torin had a surprise for us; we could take a shower on land for the first time in three weeks and it felt very good! We ended the day exhausted but continued on a night activity in which we wrote reflections about the trip and all the community service projects we did. Finally we were all glad to go to bed…
