Location: Porvenir Island, San Blas Islands

Dash and crew arose at 5:30 to begin the task of cooking coffee cake without baking soda! They felt a good solution would be to add more sugar, which made for a great start to a long and relaxing day. After class the divemasters took a group out for a snorkel, while Harrison and Alex went out fishing. Others decided to earn a most coveted “dinghy certification” badge of honor. Dylan, fresh out of training, went on a run to pick up a few stragglers. On the way he missed the dock by 360 degrees, doing a loop around then once he got his bearings nearly missed a boat, now he drives like a champ! The day continued with a quick ride to Porvenir. Teddy was excited to go up in the bosun’s chair in order to spot reefs and shallow water. He was enjoying himself so much that he didn’t even notice the meeting in the salon. We had to call up to him via the loud speaker. This made for a good laugh and a pleasant arrival in Porvenir. Here Argo was once again bombarded by the local sellers, which drained some of the crew of their savings, trading for shirts and squares of cloth. After a wonderful dinner by Dash, Matt, and Tory, the crew prepared for the trip to Portobello in the wee morning hours. Argo is once again prepared to set sail.andlt;hr width=’100’/andgt;andlt;div align=’center’andgt;andlt;tableandgt;andlt;trandgt;andlt;tdandgt;andlt;
