Location: Vixen Point, Prickly Pear
Waking up to the smell of french toast in the beautiful British Virgin Islands is a hard job, but someone needs to do it. That’s why Action Quest is here. After a mouthwatering breakfast, we headed below the surface for a short yet remarkable dive. The aquatic life seems completely different once you start to notice the symbiotic relationship between the myriad of species. Diving is a tiring sport, but there ain’t no rest for the wicked, as we needed for a snorkel in a mangrove forest. Once we saw our fair share of barracudas and stingrays, we headed ashore for a much-needed lunch, as well as to replenish our seemingly endless supply of junk food. Raise the main sail and unfurl the jib as its time to go back out to sea. We stopped at a nearby beach to play something called the Turtle Game. I will let your imaginations tell you how that game is played. Just a side note, did you know that baby turtles hatch in the thousands and sprint to the water in a mad dash (against seagulls) for their lives? The game stimulates that experience surprisingly well. After a stunning sunset, the only thing left in our itinerary was to attend a beach BBQ/party. I know all you can eat burgers and dancing on the beach sounds like stressful activities but remember, that’s why Action Quest is here. I want to say hi to my family in NJ, and I miss you guys!
