Location: Vixen Point, Gorda Sound
After a day of windsurfing and a beach BBQ, it was hard to compete, but today might have taken the cake! After eating a hearty breakfast of oatmeal, we headed to go sail the Picos! The two-person boats were fun, and maybe a little complicated… some of us may have gotten hit in the head with the boom (aka me). After getting out of the boats, we got an interesting lesson about coral reef conservation, which was surprisingly fun! All this activity made us super hungry; we practically inhaled our sandwiches! Our group split up for six-person boats, which turned out to be very interesting… Straight from the boats, we went for a snorkel around mangroves, which was amazing. We saw a stingray and a bunch of huge fish. We raced back to the boat dreaming about the Mexican food that was soon to come. After dinner, we deep cleaned the boat for an hour, and boy does it feel good! Tomorrow we’re setting off at six sharp, so we all need some sleep, but overall this has been a memorable day.
