Location: Sidney's, Jost van Dyke

Today we started the day by eating cereal for breakfast. We were all tired because we woke up earlier than usual. This was because today was the day of the hike, we were going to climb to the highest point in the Virgin Islands. We were all excited, but then we saw how inclined it was and everyone was saying things like “we are never going to get to the top.” It took Seth, Aaron, and me one hour 45 minutes to get to the top; once we were at the top, the view was beautiful. We could see the whole bay. Us three came down together and met up with some of the staff, we talked all the way down, and it was a surprising 30 minutes to get to the bottom. Then we went to have lunch in one of the places people think Jimmy Buffet wrote Cheeseburger in Paradise. We had a longshore time after we ate.

Then we sailed over to a small beautiful island where we had our sand castle competition. We made merman, a jacuzzi, and a huge turtle. Other people made a car, a dinghy, a toilet, and other good things. Then we motor-sailed over to a place where we docked/rafted. There we had a good dinner at Sydney’s Peace and Love. We talked with people from other boats and had a fun time. Then Jake and Matt (two of the staff members) started to do some telepathic game that Seth, Victoria, and I didn’t know what was going on. After a couple of times I realized what they were doing and now we know how to do it.
