Location: West End, Tortola

On the first day of AQ, our staff warned us that we would be waking up fairly early for the next three weeks. However, they didn’t warn us about the last day’s 4:15 wakeup. This was a new experience for all of us, bags flying, tears streaming, and hugs all around. After the first batch of us left we all headed back to sleep. Soon, starting at 7, we woke up to the morning mix one final time. Not many of us are sad to see it go… people have been shuffling to and from Omar’s to get an awesome breakfast. Back here on Bella C., we had to get rid of everything because she is setting sail and not staying with us next session. I’m going to miss her. As the last of us drift out, the morning slows back down to island time. For me, I have the rest of the day to relax and enjoy West End, as I will be staying on for the next session. Although Bella Christine’s shipmates are all jetting off, our memories will sail on with her forever.
