Location: White Bay, Peter Island

The fact that we’re living on a boat in paradise still hasn’t quite sunk in yet. I was especially not used to it at the wee, early, pre-6am morning hours as our wake-up CD blasted throughout the catamaran. After a program overview, swim tests, and our dive gear pick up; we headed out for South bay (all before 11 am!). Our boat ride over was initially peaceful and magical. Even though some of us got a little seasick, we still enjoyed the breathtaking view as we pulled into the bay. We took a brief dive, refreshing our skills. That was one of the best parts of the day. We then showered IN the ocean, which takes some getting used to. After having Sloppy Joe’s for dinner, we had our nightly squeeze where a question was passed around the group. We watched the sunset from the boat’s cockpit. I still can’t believe that I’m writing this in a boat, surrounded by beautiful islands and turquoise water. That will take a while to get used to, along with the lack of cell service!
