Location: Sidney's, Jost van Dyke
We woke up this morning at 6:30! We then got ready for our hike. I could see the road where the hike started from the boat by my imagination was not the same as reality. The hike was around 3.5 miles each way and was super steep. We all got super sweaty, and it was kinda gross, but at least we were hiking together with friends. After more than an hour and a half, we finally made it to the restaurant and gift shop. I waved to Izzy then, but she told me I wasn’t done which was slightly disappointing. I continued through the jungle, which was really pretty but still hot. FINALLY, I reached the end lookout point. I was like in 77th place, but I was just happy I made it! It was beautiful. I went back down and drank a smoothie. We went back to the boat and motored to another island where we got to jump in and rinse all the sweat off. There was a sandcastle contest, and our boat made a shark. I helped shape the sand which we got from a huge hole a bunch of boys dug, and sharkboy made sure it was anatomically correct. By the end, it looked amazing, and I’m sure we won. We won’t find out until tomorrow, but I’m not worried. Tonight we have our last BBQ at Sydney’s. Today was a super busy and physically demanding day but definitely one of the most fun!
