Day 13

Location: Sommer’s Beach, Tortola
Author: Caden U.
We started off the day with some scrambled eggs and leftover cake from Carolines b-day. Then we had an early dive from 8 to 12 and we brought an egg down with us and played ping pong underwater because of the pressure holding the egg together and we also played a game call ninja and we had an awesome underwater race and the best part of the dive was that we saw two awesome stingrays. After all the great diving, we went back to the boat to some yummy veggie soup. After lunch, we all jumped into the dinghies and went waterskiing and finally to end the day we had an amazing BBQ on the beach.

Happy Birthday Caroline!

Location: Muskmelon Bay, Guana Island
Author: Helen L.
We started off the day by waking up early to decorate for Carolines birthday. We blew up balloons, hung up banners and made pancakes (with lots of Nutella). While the staff was at a meeting, we all ate breakfast and got ready for the day. We sailed around for most of the day. We practiced sailing circles, anchoring, heaving to, and did man-overboard drills. We ate delicious chicken quesadillas for lunch while we were underway. The sailing was so much fun and we all improved a lot. Once we arrived at Muskmelon Bay we swam and showered. We also got our laundry back, which was very exciting. We had chili for dinner and the people that are doing Barracuda finished off the night with a night scuba dive.

A Day Sailing and Having Fun

Location: Marina Cay
Author: Madison M.
This morning was one of the best because we got to sleep a half hour more than usual. Feeling refreshed we quickly ate breakfast, and then set of to practice sailing circles. Since I was skipper, I got to go first and get the sails up. It was pretty great to be in charge of everyone. After a bunch of people practiced, we went to Trellis Bay where we got to have lunch. I ate lunch with Caroline, Helen and Max. It was so funny because Max inhaled his sandwich in literally two minutes. Then I bought some Nutella because I just have to have my Nutella. Then we went back to the boat and motored off to Marina Cay where we are going to spend the night. We got a bunch of food and new sheets, which was amazing. Now I am in the salon writing this blog. After I finish, we are going to eat dinner. We are having tortellini, which is the bomb. Then tonight we are having a Lifeworks Forum. I really like those because they are really eye opening. Ok that’s it. Today was great.

Thanksgiving in Summer

Location: Muskmelon Bay, Guana Island
Author: Daniel Y.
Today we woke up and had bagels, yogurts and fruit. Then we went to Catalinaville and got our SCUBA gear ready. We went diving at a wreck named Kodiak Queen. It is a big shipwreck after surviving the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It was brought here and sunk so that divers can swim there. We came back and learned about some animals in the area. Then we went on a second dive to try to spot different types of creatures. We came back to our boat and ate grilled cheese. After we went wakeboarding, kneeboarding, and waterskiing. Later we swung of the boom into the water. Then we had Thanksgiving in summer, which is a thanksgiving dinner on our boat. Finally, we did the squeeze and I asked what our favorite part of the day was, what character the person to our right is, and since it was thanksgiving, I asked what we were thankful for. Now we are ending with clean up.
