Longest (and Best) Day Ever

Known as the “longest day ever”, today was filled with land activities and fun! Pure Joy started their adventures with cereal at 6 am when we proceeded to meet all of AQ on the dock at Cane Garden Bay to start the infamous 6-mile hike! Uphill one-way, downhill the other, with a nice refreshing smoothie when we reached the top of Mount Sage. The hike was a challenge for many, but Pure Joy placed 4 of our shipmates in the top 20. Next, we had time to explore Cane Garden Bay where many of us enjoyed a juicy cheeseburger or a delicious veggie alternative. A lot of ice cream and passion fruit smoothies were thoroughly enjoyed along with the joy of calling home! Around 1 pm, we headed to Sandy Cay where there was an AQ sand castle building contest. Pure Joy decided we were going to replicate our dinghy named Work Boat with Jerry (our inflatable gummy bear) as the driver. Though we did not make it in the top 3, our masterpiece was definitely a winner. As we headed back to sea, we went around the corner of the island to Little Bay, Jost Van Dyke, where we would later enjoy a night of great food, fun shopping and music at Sydneys Peace and Love. There was BBQ chicken and some amazing coconut ice cream! Day 15 was one for the books and our 17-hour day had no effect on our outgoing and smiley personalities. Until next time…
