Another Day At Sea

Location: Muskmelon Bay, Guana Island
Author: Ben A.
Today we woke up and had cereal for breakfast. After breakfast we got our bathing suits on and put our sunscreen on. Next we went down below and talked and watched a movie about pollution in the ocean. It was extremely interesting. Afterwards we went skiing, wakeboarding, and kneeboarding. Tallulah got up on the wakeboard for the first time!! She was really excited!! Soon after that we went back to the boat and had PB+J and chicken salad for lunch. Then we put on sunscreen again and went scuba diving. We went on our deepest yet- 60ft!! We saw a lot of cool stuff like stingrays, aero crabs, and much more. We had a lot of fun. After a delicious dinner of white bean soup we had Lifeworks. Overall we had a great day.

My Precious!

Location: Muskmelon Bay, Guana Island

Today we all awoke to the idea of pancakes, but instead had it for lunch! (Yay for pancakes!) Our cooks today (Tallulah and Oliver and Starsi) made the pancakes. Today we learned parts of the boat and man overboard drills. We missed the float so many times. We also got to go swimming; jumping off the side is fun. JT did a backflip and a belly flop. Also Ted came by and I missed him!! I’ve wanted to hear him do “my precious” from Lord of the Rings but couldn’t find him! Now he’s gone (if you’re reading this Ted please report to Maggie B. before it’s too late). I hope everyone had a good day! P.S. I just found out that it was Craig and not Ted that could do “my precious” and now I will apologize for mixing you guys up, but if you could come over I would appreciate it.

Funny Days

Location: Marina Cay
Author: Nick D.
Today we woke up to our regular morning CD. The weather was perfect, it was sunny and the sky was blue, along with turquoise water. After we woke up we set sail for our first stop of the day- Leverick Bay, where we bought some snacks, called our families, and hung out. After we stopped there we set sail for the Dogs, a small group of islands where some of us went scuba diving and the rest of us went on a snorkel and saw the most magnificent fish of the trip. The fish were all different color and sizes. After snorkeling and scuba diving we set sail once again for Marina Cay and cleaned our beautiful bathrooms. Now our bathrooms are clean. We just finished eating dinner and are about to go to shore for a Lifeworks.

Fun Beach Day

Location: Vixen Point, Gorda Sound
Author: Tallulah N.
We woke up at 6:30am all tired from the dance, but very excited for a new day. Today was a beach day and it was fun. First we went sailing, which was very cool and it wasn’t hard because we all knew how to work the sailboat. Next we did a bunch of trusting games on the beach. You had to close your eyes fall back. My partner was Starsi. I knew she would catch me so I wasn’t scared. After was lunch, we had grilled cheese. After lunch we hung out at the beach, which was nice to just chill with everyone. When we got back to the boat we had a big cleanup and we took showers. Tonight is Mexican night for dinner and everyone is excited, except the dish washers.
