Location: Sidney's, Jost van Dyke
Today was packed with activities. It started with a long hike up Mt. Sage with the whole program. Luckily we had a long time to complete it because it was straight uphill the whole way. Once we got to the top though we could take pictures of our accomplishment and the beautiful view, and drink refreshing smoothies while shopping for souvenirs. Eventually we all had to make the walk back down, but fortunately it was mostly downhill. When we arrived at the bottom we headed for the restaurants to have a cheeseburger in paradise. Everyone was able to make calls home and update their parents. Soon it was time to head to another nearby island for a sand castle competition between all of the boats. Our boat made an awesome sea turtle that was elaborately decorated with materials found around the island. Our turtle came in second! We sadly had to leave our turtle and the beautiful island behind though to head to an exciting night at Sydney’s Peace and Love for a BBQ. The night ended a little later than usual, and we all headed back to our boats for a great night of sleep.
