Location: Great Harbor, Peter Island

Today was our first full day on Outside The Box, and we had a lot of fun.
We woke up at 7:30, some slept on deck, and some slept in cabins. After cereal and oatmeal, we all learned a couple of knots and got prepared to dock. After a little bit of tanning and bracelet making, we practiced docking and then headed off to Peter Island. Though it was a bit of a shock at first, we all had fun sitting on deck and getting splashed by waves. Alex, Ella, Gavin, and I got the chance to steer the boat when the sails went up. Once we arrived at grand harbor Peter Island, everyone got to cool off by jumping in the water for our swim tests; we swam six laps around the boat and trod water for ten minutes. Then, we lathered up in shampoo and soap and jumped back into the ocean for our saltwater shower. Finally, Micheal and Tej treated us to a dinner of Alfredo pasta, and we met our new shipmate Sam. Today was a great day of learning new things and making new friends. We can’t wait to see what tomorrow will bring!
