Location: The Bight, Norman Island, BVI

Today is what I think we would call the first day. We started the day off by waking up at 6:30 AM and began our day with a delicious breakfast consisting of cereal. It doesn’t sound like much, but it was great being around the other shipmates for the first time due to the last person arriving at around 12:30 AM last night. As soon as we finished breakfast, we had our boat talk, and that soon led to the whole ActionQuest talk with Mike. Then around 11:00 AM, we set off to begin our exciting Minerva trip. Our first stop took us around two hours to get to, and immediately after we arrived, we had our swim test. However, after the test, our plans to snorkel around the Caves were changed due to the number of other people doing the same thing. Instead, we ended up hiking on Spyglass Hill, which had an amazing view of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. To sum it up, we finished the day with Sloppy Joe’s.
