Location: West End, Tortola

Hey guys! Today we woke up at 7:00 to cinnamon apple pancakes made by Dylan and me. After breakfast, we were briefed on our task for today….cleaning our boat. At first, I wasn’t fazed by this task as we have 11 people, so I figured it wouldn’t take long. I was wrong. 3 hours in and many failed inspections by Cat, Cara, and Matt, I had begun to lose hope. But after remembering the past 3 weeks of memories, Sweetspot had provided, I had a burst of energy and finished cleaning. After looking at our beautiful vessel, we were quite proud and celebrated with a deli meat sandwich lunch. After lunch, we all played cards, and I beat everyone at poker. We then went onshore for a quick BBQ and finished the day with a great sunset. We are about to gather around for Alexis’s birthday. Big shout out to her for turning the big 15. Unfortunately, this will be our last blog! Although it is quite sad, we are all so happy with all of the memories we have made throughout this trip. My personal favorite was getting to scuba dive and see many sharks. This trip has been amazing in so many ways, and I am so glad that I was a part of it. I met so many great people and was able to see so many cool places. I know we are all sad to go home but are all excited to see our friends and family when we return. I hope you all had a great Fourth of July and can’t wait to see you all!
