Location: West End, Tortola

The weather was very hot and humid until later in the day when it rained, and there were thunderstorms. Today we arrived at Tortola airport and took a crazy taxi ride to the boats. Some people flew into St. Thomas and took a ferry to the boats. When we first arrived at the dock, someone told us what boat to go to. When we got to Knot Guilty, Nick and Averill had a whiteboard with instructions on our schedule. We checked in and locked up our money, passports, and cell phones. Then we took our first saltwater showers. After that, we just had to wait for everyone to arrive. For dinner, we had tortellini with tomato sauce and garlic bread. There were only six people at dinner, then everyone else arrived.
