Location: Vixen Point, Gorda Sound
It is Day 7, and there is a lot of rain. Luckily that did not have any effect on our plans though. Breakfast was french toast, and it was really good. After breakfast, we gathered our equipment and went diving at Mountain Point. Today was a training dive to show that we could navigate on our own and either complete Fish ID or Underwater Naturalist training requirements. After the dive, we move to Leverick Bay for groceries, T-shirts, and other necessities. We stayed at the port for around two hours, and some of us even socialized with the locals. Leaving land was sad, but our Fish ID knowledge review discussion made up for it. Following the talk, we met up on shore for beach games including the legendary educational game of Hawksbill vs. Green Sea Turtle relay. We had so much fun that we lost track of time and barely made it back to the boat in time to prepare for the beach BBQ with the whole AQ fleet. At the BBQ, DJ Heavy Beats dropped some heavy beats, and everyone had a great time. I can’t wait for tomorrow!
