Day 15- Exhausting Excursions
Posted: Tue, Jul 1, 2014
Location: Sidney’s, Jost van Dyke
Rising bright and early, we scarfed breakfast and hurriedly prepared for the day ahead. We all pile into Scarface, our dinghy and puttered to the dock where Mike briefed us on the hike. From literal sea level we hiked all the way across Tortola and trudged to the top of the tallest mountain in the Virgin Islands, Mt. Sage. As a reward we got a spectacular view of Road Town and some amazingly delicious banana smoothies. Sweating and exhausted, Phebe and I finally reached the foot of the mountain and Cane Garden Bay. After having cheeseburgers in paradise we got deliciously cold ice cream and headed back to Gemini. We quickly set sail for Sandy Spit to have a sand castle building contest. After going through some pretty great ideas we decided to build a giant mask and snorkel with a hand giving the “ok” signal. On top of that, to celebrate finishing our DM test, we added the words “PADI Pro” to it. Now we set off for a BBQ and dance at Sydney’s on Jost van Dyke- a great way to end a great (and exhausting) day!
