A Fin, A Plate, and a PVC Pipe

Location: The Bight, Norman Island

We woke up today to a beautiful day at Great Harbor, Peter Island. At around 9 the Neptunes and Jamie went for a morning fun dive where we proceeded to find a fin, a plate, and fought each other with a PVC pipe underwater. When we got back up we headed straight to Road Town, which I had the pleasure of steering us towards. At Road Town we were given 2 hours to look around. Yanni and Leo bought a ton of pudding and randomly started passing them out which was pretty hilarious. When our time was up we sat and talked with Aftica III about various pranks then loaded back onto Grand Cru. We sailed over to Norman Island and I can’t really tell you what happened during the trip because I fell asleep in the sun…again. Once there we all took showers and Yanni did a wicked good cannonball. The day was topped off by a fantastic dinner prepared by our own Nikki and Clovis. Now I’m getting ready to do my squeeze question and with the one I have planned let’s hope we all survive the last two days!

Bonfires and BBQ’s

Location: Sandy Spit

This morning half of our boat went on a dive. For the Neptunes it was a fun dive while the Dolphins went on a research dive. By all accounts it was an awesome dive. After a detour to pick of the people who had gone on a clinic run we all went to get ice cream on the beach. Best ice cream I’ve had in a while. After that we sailed for just under an hour. After the boat was anchored we went for a dive in the Playgrounds, another fabulous dive. In the evening we headed over to one of the tiny islands for the beach bonfire. We took the dinghy over to the beach. There we had a BBQ and watched the bonfire and the staff twirling fire. All in a very good day!

A Turtle A Day Keeps the Doctor Away

What a day! Dolphins finally did their first research dive. The Neptunes played poker underwater along with buoyancy agility courses. We were really treated to a surprise when the Dolphins were turtle tagging. They brought back the turtles onto the boat where they measured them, it’s a memory I will never forget. Then we headed back to the bay to waterski. Everyone was a little rusty but most of us managed to stand up and all of us had fun. Once we got back to the boat we showered and ate a great dinner. Its hard to believe how fast time flies here. I think I speak for every shipmate when I say “thank you parents!”
