Today we woke up to a great breakfast of scrambled eggs and blueberry muffins. We were then joined by the Questers for turtle tagging. Although we did not actually catch any turtles this time, we chased some turtles and had a great time snorkeling in the beautiful sea life. We said goodbye to the Questers and ate Tuscan white bean soup craftily prepared by our chefs. On our second and also unsuccessful attempt at tagging we saw even more in the shallow, crystal-clear water. While boarding our dingy to return to the boat we faced some challenges. Charlotte, in particular, struggled to climb in. Our skipper, Elliot’s heroic attempt to pull Charlotte in ended in failure as his grip on Charlotte slipped and he fell back and ended up knocking Emry off the dinghy. After many laughs, everyone safely made it back onto the dinghy. To finish off the day for dinner we had a great summertime Thanksgiving with all the fixings. To top it all off we had a brownie baking party!
