Day 2- Second Day Snorkel
Posted: Thu, Jul 10, 2014
Location: The Bight, Norman Island
We started the day by waking up have having some cereal for breakfast. After breakfast we all put our bedding away and headed to the local general store and got some snacks like chips, coke and cookies. When we got back from the general store it was time to push off the dock for the first time and start our adventure. We left Tortola and headed to Norman Island to snorkel in some caves and anchor for the night. On our way to Norman Island it was the first time we got underway and were sailing. It was a lot of fun and people of different levels of experience were helping each other out when they did not know something or needed help. Once we arrived at Norman Island, we took the dinghy over with our dive instructor Matt and snorkeled, which was awesome because we saw so many cool fish. But before we went snorkeling we took our swim test and had sandwiches for lunch. Once done with snorkeling we showered and went over to the Bight, which is a harbor in Norman Island to spend the night. After we got to our anchorage we had a dinner of Sloppy Joe’s and then after dinner we did the squeeze. This is when we talk about our day and a little bit about ourselves. We cleaned up and are just about ready for our first scuba chat to start the process of getting our first dive in. Looking forward to tomorrow because today was so much fun.
