Day 16- The Realization Day
Posted: Wed, Jul 2, 2014
Location: Sandy Spit, Green Cay
Today was rather slow but still filled with hard work and determination. We began the information packed day with a classic American dish, the exquisite pancakes. After that we untied ourselves from the dock. Smudge began to assess us with tasks related to the subject of sailing (knots, tacks, etc). I proudly completed each task with the help of my shipmates. I believe that if we set our minds to it, our group works as strenuously as a pack of lions. After completing the tasks, I sat down and began to realize the joy and tragedy of what is going to occur in 5 days. In 5 days I will happily greet my friends and family back in South Beach. This is amazing, I have the greatest family in the world. I am happy, yet unhappy. These few minutes tell me that all of the funny jokes, awesome people and waking up to a beautiful view every day is coming to a close. I wish I could bring back Big Blue, the kneeboard and all of the hilarious moments onboard Sambamba. I took a moment to realize that I am one lucky dude to have the opportunity to go to such a sweet camp, especially in the BVI. After this moment I grabbed a snorkel and fins and headed to the beach with Calypso. We all had our laughs. The day is coming to an end and I hope these last few days are packed with memories!
