Day 2- Our First Day at Sea
Posted: Wed, Jun 17, 2015
Location: The Bight, Norman Island
This morning we woke up bright and early ahead of a day of excitement! We started off the day with breakfast, which was cereal. We then all went off to a meeting with Mike (the director) and he told us everything we needed to know about the next three weeks. After that we were given time to go to Harbour Market. Back on the boat we prepared to set sail! We had to wait for the majority of the boats to leave before we could. Once we finally set sail, as the skipper I drove the boat first, once I got the hang of it. When the water got much more rough it got difficult again. After some time driving Ryan took over. Once we got to Norman Island we had lunch, cleaned up and took our swim tests. When we finished our swim test we waited until it was our turn to snorkel in the caves. Snorkeling in the caves was a lot of fun. We saw cool fish, such as a lion fish. When we finished snorkeling we came back and took salt water showers and then fresh water showers. For dinner we had Sloppy Joe’s and cleaned up after. Later tonight people who are on the Vega trip went to a scuba chat while the people who are on Quest will go to the Lifeworks boat to learn more about what they are doing.
