Location: Mountain Point, Virgin Gorda
With an early start to the day, I thought there was no way I could survive. It was so much more exciting than every other day so far. First, we ate amazing pancakes with Nutella for breakfast. Shortly after that, we assembled all of our dive gear and jumped right into the water. While underwater, we saw so many new creatures! My favorite fish that we saw today was stoplight parrotfish and squirrelfish. For second rotation, we went wakeboarding, kneeboarding, and waterskiing. This is one of my favorite rotations! After these watersports, we ate grilled cheese for lunch. For third rotation, we did man overboard drills. Instead of using a person as the “man,” we used a buoy attached to a bucket. Fifteen to twenty minutes after we started these drills, it started pouring buckets on us. It was raining so hard it stung! We were all so thankful that we got to go back to our boat. Instead of doing fourth rotation, Jack decided we would eat an early dinner so we could have an extra long sail talk. While everyone else was preparing dinner, I went to practice some diving skills with Simon (who has the most awesome Scottish accent by the way). When we came back, I was welcomed by a delicious Thanksgiving dinner.
