Day 8- Fun In The Sun
Posted: Fri, Aug 5, 2016
Location: Mountain Point, Virgin Gorda
Today was a unforgettable day, not only because of the beautiful landscapes we saw, but because of everything we did. We started the day with a delicious breakfast, which our chefs (Maisy and Jimmy) made with care, the scrambled eggs were so delicious! After eating that empowering meal, we prepared ourselves for the big scuba test, which we all passed easily, thanks to the great teaching that our staff gave us. Then we went to Calypso and learned a ton of knots. When we finished doing knots we returned to Squeaky brat where Emma received us with the best grilled cheese sandwiches I have ever had in my life. Then we went to do watersports, which, for quit a few of us it was the first time standing up so we were pretty excited. But the most memorable part of the day was scuba diving, where we saw beautiful wildlife that you would never get to see every day. It was our first open water dive and it was great. Ive never seen such beautiful things before and I will always remember it as the best day of my life. Discussing and learning with Spencer about the species we saw was also one of the best parts because its very interesting to know about everything that we saw. Some of us saw giant lobster, parrot fish, lion fish and blue tangs. Today we also learned how to drive dinghies and it was pretty fun trying to do man overboard in them. Finally, we finished our day with a delicious meal of salad and soup. We will finish the day with a sailing chat with Emma and Fritz. Through the whole day, it was fun seeing smiles in everyones faces and this day will be something to remember forever.
