Location: Pinney’s Beach, Nevis
Today was an absolutely amazing day. It all started with my friends and I waking up to a beautiful sunrise over the island of Nevis. Soon after waking up to that truly gorgeous sunrise, Gwen taught us how to read sailing charts. After learning about charts and different things to watch out for while sailing, we hopped in the dinghy and set off for the shores of Nevis. Once we landed ashore we explored the town, Charlestown.Experiencing the culture of this magnificent island really opened my eyes to how fun and upbeat the “Nevisian” lifestyle is. Everyone I talked to was so friendly! After walking around and exploring the town for a bit, in the late afternoon some of the group went horseback riding along the beach. The trails were filled with beautiful green bushes and trees. There was even a cow blocking a trail that we had to move out of the way so we could get through. After riding the horses we made our way back to the boat and watched a beautiful Caribbean sunset. Today was truly amazing.
