Location: Mountain Point, Virgin Gorda

Today I awoke in my hammock on the bow after a particularly windy night. Today was our second day of activity rotations in Mountain Point. I spent today taking Brage, Lindsey, Casey, Mike, Joe, and McKenna on their first dive outside of our confined water dive pen. This was a great dive, and the shipmates informed me that they all had a very good time. Our advanced divers, Lulu and Ian, completed an underwater naturalist dive while Annie and Kaki went for a snorkel. I also had the opportunity to finish up some confined water skills with shipmates in our dive pen. The highlight of the day was helping Sam, who was very uncomfortable taking his mask off his face. It was very rewarding to see him succeed. We finished the day with a good Thanksgiving meal and an early night to bed for me on the bow of the boat, ready to gear up for another busy day of diving.
