Location: Savanna Bay, Virgin Gorda

Today we took our first breaths underwater. We submerged our heads beneath the surface, leaving behind all the world above land, and reemerged in a new one. Many of us had to periodically be told to focus, but the awe and wonder were overwhelming. Although most people do not recall their first breaths after being born, this was a new first breath that we will surely remember. After the mini sailboat lesson, windsurf trial, and scuba, we all returned to our respective boats for a lunch of sandwiches, cheese, and fruit. We then again left our boats in dinghies for exciting rounds of kneeboarding, wakeboarding, and waterskiing. We finished bruised and tired just in time for the last swim and jumping off the boat. After showers we all overindulged pasta alfredo, hot dogs, salad, garlic bread, and finally some delicious cake. We ended the day falling asleep under the stars. date: Aug 1, 2017
