Day 5: The Baths
Posted: Sun, Jul 13, 2014
Location: Mountain Point, Virgin Gorda
The best part of today hasn’t even happened yet! Tonight we start our night dive certification, the sea in the BVIs is spectacular during the day so I’m excited to see it in the dark. This morning we had the opportunity to swim at the Baths, this beautiful cove was originally a stop along the slave trade route, where the slaves were given an opportunity to wash themselves during the treacherous journey. Today, despite being a reminder of history, the Baths consist of stunning beaches and incredible caves which include a path to a tall cliff that we all jumped off of into the beautiful water. Then, after our first real showers, we docked in Spanish Town and enjoyed cheeseburgers and sightseeing. After the beautiful town we were off. I happily learned how to sail and directed us to our snorkel and dive site. Now we are on our way to our night dive and are excited to see all our new skills in action!
