Location: Sidney's, Jost van Dyke

Changes In Latitude started off the day bright and early with a beautiful hike up Mt. Sage. Through 7 miles of pouring rain, stunning views, and delicious smoothies at the top, the hike was the highlight of my day. After we finished the hike, my shipmates and I enjoyed a longshore time filled with cheeseburgers in paradise, ice cream, snow cones, and time to talk to our parents. After shore time at Cane Garden Bay, we motored to Sandy Cay to have a sandcastle building contest with the rest of the AQ boats. Our boat made a pig in the sand after Requeese, our neon yellow toy pig on board, (best shipmate). We just finished up showering and getting ready for the BBQ at Sydney’s Peace and Love. Today has been one of the best days of the whole trip. I can’t believe there are only five days left. I have met such amazing people, and I have learned so many things about everyone, I feel like we are all a family now. I am very sad to leave my best friends. We are getting off the boat to go to the BBQ.

PS. Miss you mom and dad!
