Location: Sydney's, Jost van Dyke

Today in most of our opinions was the longest day of the whole trip! We had to be up bright and early to be ready on the docks for our major hike. We hiked to the top of the tallest point in the Virgin Islands! We got to cool down on the walk back with delicious banana smoothies. Once we got back to the bottom, we got to eat cheeseburgers in paradise, where Jimmy Buffet wrote the song. After our cheeseburgers, we were quick to set sail to a new island, where we had a sand castle competition. Sadly, we did not win. However, I thought our sea scene with the jellyfish and fish was perfectly executed! We were able to cool off in the ocean after all of the sweat we shed from the hike and sand castle competition. Again, we were quick to set sail to another island, where we got to have our BBQ at Sydney’s Peace and Love. It’s going to be a great BBQ, but by the end, we are all going to be too tired to walk! And one last thing from all the Spindrift shipmates: we love and miss our families but are having the time of our lives here! We will see you all soon.
