Location: Sydney's, Jost van Dyke

Today is probably one of the most fun days at ActionQuest. We started super early to go on a hike up Mt. Sage. I didn’t think it would be as hard as it was! When we hit that first hill, I wasn’t sure how I was going to make it the whole way! But as we got close to the top, I saw those banana smoothies, and I had the motivation to keep going. They were so good! It was worth it because the view was great. But we had to take our time on the way down because we were so tired. When we got to the bottom, we had a lot of shore time. We got to have amazing cheeseburgers and ice cream. It was nice to have all that time on land. After that, we had a sand castle building competition. Sadly we didn’t win, yet our sea turtle was pretty great. The winner was a singing mermaid. We had no chance there. After that, we got to swim for a little and then went back to the boat. We then got ready for our BBQ at Sydney’s. I’m excited! Also, we learned how to do something called Mediterranean mooring. So far, this trip has been really fun. I can’t believe it’s almost over. I remember I was the skipper back on the second day. Now here we are on day 15 with only six days to go. Time flies when you’re having fun!
