Location: Sidney's, Jost van Dyke

Today is potentially the best day at AQ. There are three main parts of this marvelous day: a hike, a sandcastle competition and food. First the hike. We woke up at about 6am and proceeded to eat a quick breakfast of cereal. Hugh won a food eating competition by devouring six bowls of cereal. Then we went to the dock for the hike. Connor and JJ stretched for the long journey ahead. Griffin decided to prepare by jamming to some hip hop. The hike started before we knew it. I was carrying our boat coconut named Wilson. As I was going up I saw Jared walking without shoes and I noted how awesome that was. After about an hour I made it up and I saw Jeff and Dylan sweating but with a smile on their face. After the best banana smoothies in the world we meandered our way down as a group. Although Jordan, Kelly and Hannah couldn’t make the hike, we saw them back on the boat. Next we went to and island called Sandy Cay. There we all worked together to build the awesomest of awesome sandcastles. It was dinghy featuring Katja as a mermaid. Hopefully we win that competition. Finally we made our way to Jost van Dyke where we are having a delicious BBQ dinner with music. Today was a long and awesome day. It never fails to constantly put a smile on all of our faces.
