Location: Sidney's, Jost Van Dyke

Today we woke up at the crack of dawn to eat breakfast and get ready for the hike. We were at the dock by 7 am. At the talk, we received directions, and we were off. The beginning of the hike was steep – 3.5 miles up and 3.5 miles down. The hike had some flat parts but not many. The view of the bay even halfway up was spectacular. When we got close to the top, there was this gift shop and smoothie place. When we got there, we were so close to the top. Now we got to go through the woods part of the hike. The ground was so muddy, but when we got to the top, the view was just amazing. You could see the whole bay, and you could see all of the AQ boats in the harbor. After the hike, we had brunch and stayed on land until 12:45, and we got back on the boat. We were off to the sand castle competition. We made a mermaid, and Christian was the mermaid. We had sand on her legs and put white rocks on s scales, and when the judge came, Christian sang the song from the Little Mermaid. After that, we went back to Peeps and motored off to Sydney’s where we are having dinner.
