Location: Sidney's, Jost van Dyke

Today I woke up at 5:50, had breakfast which consisted of cereal and then got ready for our hike, and within five minutes of starting I was pondering whether to stop! It’s so steep that it’s not so much a hike, but a climb until you reach the top. The views are so beautiful. Unless you’re a road runner or can fly it’s a hard hike, but you will not regret it as you take those last few steps and sign the book- it’s an amazing feeling! After we went to a restaurant where Jimmy Buffet supposedly wrote the song “Cheeseburgers in Paradise.” And I must say I can see why he wrote it! After we went to Sandy Cay for a sand castle competition. We made “the cube!” which was pure architectural genius, but we didn’t win. Now we’re about to have a BBQ. Mom and Dad, my demands now include scuba gear, a kneeboard, and a dinghy.
