Climbing the Pitons

This morning those who wanted to woke up at 4:30 am (to be on deck at 5am for breakfast) and hiked up the Piton, the mountain that towered over our anchorage and was screaming to be concurred. The hike was amazing for two main reasons. The first being that cit was more of a climb than a hike because the mountain is so steep that lines were needed to get to the summit safely and the second being that the view from the summit was incredible. Once all the hikers made it back to sea level in one piece we set off for Marigot bay. Upon arrival we had our second Marine Biology exam and a discussion about Artificial Reefs. After dinner we had a night out in Marigot Bay and then straight to bed after the action packed day.
