Location: Great Harbor, Peter Island
The day started with a breakfast of pancakes. While the Barracudas set up their dive gear for a fun dive, the Vegas logged their first dives. I saw at the bow of the boat, reading a book and eating some snacks. With an ear infection, I couldn’t get in the water. About two hours later, my shipmates went waterskiing and wakeboarding. I took our dinghy for a spin- with Lisa’s permission- and continued to read and eat snacks back at the boat. Things continued to get better. I got to helm the boat and organize our trip to Road Town, the capital of the BVI! I could swear I had an adrenaline rush, and I also had the best time at the helm. There were only a few moments where I had problems steering in the waves. When we got to Road Town (road trip!), I went to have my ears checked out with Rachael. Thankfully it didn’t take long, and I was able to go get ice cream and have a bit of lunch. I was also able to do an interview about ActionQuest with Will and Charlize. I thought we did pretty good on it (I found it hilarious). We sailed back to Peter Island, where we had anchored previously. After quickly preparing dinner, we watched the other Barracudas go on their certifying night dive and chatted for a while. Although I didn’t get in the water at all today, it was nice to spend one of my last days at camp with my shipmates.
