Location: Mountain Point, Virgin Gorda

Chance, Ruth, and I cannot believe half the trip has gone by! The crew of Sambamba has grown together like a family. Every day our shipmates impress us. This morning we had a staff meeting in Marina Cay. When we returned, the chefs Emily and Jack had created quite the presentation! A stack of pancakes, fresh fruit and juice were waiting for us on a neatly set cockpit table. We were so impressed! We have started the open water dives, and Chance and I think that we have a bunch of scuba naturals. Sambamba is always happy, constantly laughing and getting along great! We are sad we only have 8 days left as a crew, but we have agreed not to talk about the end and continue to live in the moment!
