Location: Sandy Spit, Green Cay
This morning we woke up to the smell of hot, fresh pancakes. The staff left on the dingy as we were devouring the peanut butter and syrup covered pancakes. As soon as we finished and cleaned up, we set sail for the Playgrounds, our dive site for the day. On the way, waves sprayed everyone with cool, refreshing seawater. As soon as we arrived, we set up our dive gear and jumped into the water. The Dolphin group had a research dive to gather data for our final project. The Neptune group had a fun dive where they saw a nurse shark feeding. After we got back onto the boat, put our gear away, and dried off, we sailed again to Sandy Spit. There, we took the dinghies onto the shore and played around in the warm, tropical sand. After swimming, photoshoots, and games, we climbed back into the dinghies and headed back to the boats for showers. We dried off on the bow and hung out until the chefs had finished making our dinner of rice and beans, hot dogs, salad, and garlic bread. We topped it off with brownies fresh from the oven. They were delicious! We ended the night with an inspiring Lifeworks session with the whole dive side about goals. Even though we were all sore from yesterday’s long hike, today was yet another amazing and eventful day!
