Location: Gorda Sound, Virgin Gorda, BVI

The day started off by heading into the bight of the North Sound of Virgin Gorda for a Marine Biology class of snorkeling through the mangroves! By the end of the snorkel collectively, I think we saw every barracuda and its baby in all of the BVI’s! Back on board, we all lounged on the deck, soaking up some sun and much-needed break time as we have our oceanography research papers due tomorrow. After an amazing lunch made by Carolyn, Annemarie, and Griswold, we went ashore to Prickly Pear island, where a very intense game of volleyball came about. As everyone was diving in the sand and sweating in the sun, a jump in the ocean was much needed. Which then again turned into a game of sprinting as fast as you can down the beach into the water to “run on water”! Around 5 pm we headed back on board for a jump in showers and dinner. After a very quick clean up- we all found our cleanest clothes and went ashore to the bitter end yacht club for a night out! It was a beautiful restaurant area with a great beach area and hammocks to enjoy. Once back on board, everyone soon crashed from the awesome day full of sun and salt.
