Day 2- First Day On The Water
Posted: Thu, Jun 16, 2016
Location: The Bight, Norman Island
After spending the night sleeping up on top of the sailboat, we woke up around 6am. We ate breakfast, and before leaving the dock to set sail, the whole program sat down for a meeting with the director of ActionQuest. Soon after preparing the boat, the staff helped us set sail for Norman Island. Before we got to snorkel we ate some lunch and took a swim test, which consisted of swimming six laps around the boat and treading water for ten minutes. Before dinner, after seeing a sea turtle and snorkeling for a little bit, we all took showers off the back of the boat. At dinner I read a quote and asked the group “If you could live anywhere in the world right now, where would it be?” This was by far my most favorite part of the day… we were all gathered together, the waves lapping against the boat, and the sun starting to go down. I’m excited for tomorrow and what the day will bring!
