Location: Sidney's, Jost van Dyke

Today everybody woke up at 5:45 am for a hike. We had cereal and collected our items, refilled water, and we were given our phones. We were given a briefing by Mike on the dock. The first 45 minutes of the hike was challenging. In a group of four, we struggled to walk up an extremely steep hill. Fifteen minutes in I was already sweating and my legs were beginning to hurt. Halfway through I was able to see a breathtaking view. It was a huge valley of lush trees with the vast blue ocean. I ascended the mountain to the peak, stopped for a smoothie on the way down, and then began walking down the hill. It was difficult because it was so steep that we were almost running down while trying to walk. after the hike, we went to a small town and then built sandcastles. Then we came back to the boat, had showers, and we are hyped for the BBQ.
