When the Journey Comes to an End…

Last night, I slept outside under the stars and they were amazingly bright. It was an unforgettable feeling to wake up to the rising sun. The Neptunes finished up their wreck specialty dives today at a site called Kissing Wrecks which has three wrecks next to each other. The Rescues studied for their tests and did rescue scenarios. They did so well and the Neptunes feel so safe around them now! After all of the training and preparation for the exam, they deserved something joyful so they went on a fun dive at Blue Chromis Reef. The Neptunes hung out on Luna Kahuna and enjoyed making new friends and diving under the shining sun. I’m sure we are all going to be really tan when we return home. When everyone returned to their boats, we all moved back to GHP. The Neptunes took the lead in the kitchen and instead of the usual dinner meal, they made breakfast! During this time, the Rescues took their exam and I’m sure they did really well. The Neptunes have their exam tonight! During the squeeze tonight I realized that our boat has become a family. When the journey is about to end you realize how much you love this place and these people. You start to appreciate every single minute and every hour feels like a second. In the BVIs you don’t look at your watch because time doesn’t matter, people matter. It’s my last time being a skipper and writing to you, me, us. I want to say just one thing: this journey was an unforgettable experience that made me become a different person, make new friends, try new things, and learn a lot about a sailor/ diver life, as well as, about myself. I faced my fears and stepped out of my comfort zone and it was absolutely amazing.
