Location: Sidney's, Jost van Dyke

Today we woke up at 6, a little earlier than usual, to get ready for the hike to the top of Mt. Sage. I was super pumped and excited for the hike. That is until I saw the road we were hiking. It was a steep angle. I wanted to quit after the first 45 minutes of the hike. I pushed on with determination. The hike gradually got easier, turning into a flat road to walk on. Two hours later, I was at the top looking at this incredible view. Later in the day, we moved on to the sand castle contest where we made a wiener dog because Anna, the judge, has a crazy obsession with dogs. The other boats blew us away with their creativity. Unless Anna likes dogs, REALLY likes dogs, we lost. Editor’s note: Celestial Storm finished second in the sand castle contest.
