Location: Sommer’s Beach, Tortola
Today we started off with scrambled eggs made by the two chefs of the day. Our first activity today was Pico sailing. We went on a treasure hunt and raced, it was really fun. After Pico sailing we went on our third open water dive (one away from getting certified!). We saw baby stingrays and many other colorful fish. I learned how to blow rings under water, which was pretty cool. We went back to our boat and our lunch was waiting for us, tortilla soup. It was delicious. After lunch we had a sail chat and learned all about the functions and parts of our boats. When we finished with that we got a chance to ski/wakeboard/kneeboard. I have never wakeboarded before this trip and now I can actually stand up and jump from off of the wake into it! Tonight we had a BBQ and had hamburgers and hot dogs. So much has changed on this boat since day one. We are all a big family and each of us play a huge role in holding everything together. We are all looking forward to earning our certifications and diving the Rhone shipwreck. P.S. We will miss you Alexa! Love Ya!
