Hello everyone! My name is Jordan and I am the skipper today of this here fine vessel. We awoke much before our alarm and started breakfast. Hugh and Jeff performed the arduous task of boiling water for our scrumptious oatmeal breakfast. Groggy and sluggish after last night’s intense jam session, we all set up our scuba gear in preparation for our DSD instruction course. Laughs broke out as we watched the demonstration because Simon, the Scottish skipper, acted like an excited 6 year old. The dive was both interesting and fun, with Jules being a problem student who swam at full speed away from her instructor.” The laughs don’t end there though. Cha Cha found and adopted a ship pet/new shipmate – a coconut named Wilson. He helped sit watch while we righteous DMs helped tow one another to safety (aka – the end of the awful physical test). We were awarded with an hour of shore time and Hibiclens showers at Leverick Bay. Wilson, our coconut shipmate, joined Emily and I for adventures at port. He gets to eat Gelato, tie knots, drive Manic and socialize. Cha Cha was very thankful that we documented his memorable first steps. We motored over to Mountain Point where we ate Mexican food with Sam!! Dinner was great but the deep squeeze was even better as we got to share life lessons learned through experiences. Another great day here on surprise. Wilson standing by on 72. #whereintheworldisWilson #StayclassyforChaCha #Simonsays #Katjacaughtsya
