Location: West End, Tortola

El campamento ya se acaba! Estas tres semanas han pasado tan rapido, parece que fue hace dos dias que llegue al campamento. Esta manana hicimos nuestra ultima inmersion, fue en un lugar llamado The Indians. Solo tengo una palabra para describir ese lugar INCREIBLE, he visto peces que nunca habia visto antes, estava lleno de coral y color. Baje hasta unos 72 pies, y aun que era algo profundo la visivilidad era realmente buena, lo podia ver todo perfectamente. Despues de la inmersion tocava limpieza, mientras navegavamos limpiamos nuestras cavinas, estavan sorprendentemente limpias. Pero aun que las habitaciones no nos dieron mucho trabajo, acabamos todos un poco mareados. Asi que nos refrescamos con la agradable brisa del caribe, mientras navegavamos hacia puerto. Una vez en puerto tocava mas limpieza, todos nos pusimos manos a la obra! Yo limpie la cocina bien a fondo, mis companeros limpiaron el salon, los banos, la cubierta y lavaron los platos, creo que no me dejo nada mas. Esta vez la limpieza fue mas dura ya que se puso a llover, pero estamos echos unos marineros asi que un poco de lluvia no nos puede parar! Despues de un duro trabajo el barco quedo precioso, como nuevo. Nos tuvimos que esperar hasta que la lluvia cesara, asi que tuvimos bastante tiempo para prepararnos para ir a “tierra”. Hoy es el ultimo dia asi que tocava hacer las compras de ultima hora, pero sin olvidarnos de comer! Algunos del barco se fueron a un restaurante a tomarse una hamburguesa o una pizza, yo me fui con Rocio al super a comprar un bocadillo y un buen trozo de queso! Nos lo comimos todo en una cafeteria junto a otros companeros del barco. En la cafeteria me pude tomar un delicioso y caliente capuccino para calentarnos, porque la lluvia era bastante fuerte! En definitiva, este campamento ha sido fantastico, no puedo haver tenido mas suerte con los companeros que me han tocado y es que lo unico que lamento de este campamento es que no dure todo el verano.

 

The camp is over! These three weeks have gone by so quickly, and it seems that it was two days ago that I arrived at the camp. This morning we did our last dive; it was at a place called The Indians. I only have one word to describe that INCREDIBLE place. I have seen fish that I had never seen before; I was full of coral and color. I went down to about 72 feet, and even though it was something deep the visibility was really good, I could see everything perfectly. After the immersion cleaning, while we were sailing we cleaned our cabins, they were surprisingly clean. But even though the rooms did not give us much work, we ended up all a little dizzy. So we refresh ourselves with the pleasant breeze of the Caribbean, while we sail towards the port. Once in port, it’s cleaner, we all got to work! I cleaned the kitchen thoroughly; my companions cleaned the living room, the bathrooms, the deck and washed the dishes. I think I did not leave anything else. This time the cleaning was harder as it started to rain, but we are some sailors so a little rain cannot stop us! After hard work, the boat was beautiful, like new. We had to wait until the rain stopped, so we had plenty of time to prepare to go to “land.” Today is the last day, so it’s time to make the last minute purchases, but without forgetting to eat! Some of the boats went to a restaurant to have a hamburger or a pizza; I went with Rocio to the supermarket to buy a sandwich and a good piece of cheese! We ate it all in a cafeteria with other shipmates. In the cafeteria, I could have a delicious and hot cappuccino to warm up, because the rain was quite strong! In short, this camp has been fantastic, I can not have had more luck with the companeros that have touched me, and the only thing I regret about this camp is that it does not last all summer.
