Location: Vixen Point, Gorda Sound
Today I woke up surrounded by the beautiful scenery that is that island of Prickly Pear. I started off the day by taking in all of the sailboats gently rocking in the wind with THE BEST backdrop ever. (aka THE BVI). After everyone was awake we rushed into action to prepare, eat, and clean up breakfast before it was time for our day’s activities to begin. First, we all took turns either wakeboarding, skiing, or knee boarding. Then we began to learn a few basic knots that we need to know in order to sail. Next, we went over to a neighboring ship to meet up with our diving instructor, Jay. Jay showed us how to use a diving table in order to know how long we can stay underwater. Directly after, we all ran at a full sprint back to Aeolus for our long-awaited mac and cheese. We proceeded to cleanup ASAP so we could finally go on the beach, which had been taunting us since we had arrived. Once on the beach, we played a few games of ninja and mafia, and Frisbee. We soon had to pause our activities for a short rainstorm. However, the storm gave way to a bright sun shining down on us while we learned to windsurf, had chicken fights and soaked in some rays (with loads of sunscreen of course). After we finished having digging competitions we FINALLY got Grant to do a backflip, we headed back to Aeolus to prepare our dinner. Overall, today has been fun day on an island in the sun.
