Location: Sandy Spit, Green Cay

We woke up this morning to the jarring chirp of my iPod’s alarm, which would have been greeted by the slam of my hand on the snooze button if not for the promise of another fun-packed ActionQuest day. After munching on cereal and toast for breakfast, we set sail for a beautiful morning cruise, stopping for lunch and a quick swim before heading to Sandy Spit for the night. We were all surprised by the tiny strip of sand in front of us, but once we were dinghied over to the beach, we saw perhaps the most picturesque waves we’d seen all trip. After dinner under the sunset with shipmates from the other boats, we returned to Bella Vita for a shower. Now, sitting under the glow of a full moon, surrounded by the silhouettes of lush Caribbean islands, I am struck by the beauty of this moment and the magic of this trip.
