After a speedy sail through the night, we arrived bright and early back in the BVI’s. Most of the crew experienced a very smooth (and dry) sail last night, however some of the crew was wide awake for slight interrogation by a Dutch War Ship (but no worries, it just sounds a lot scarier than it really was). The crew was all very sad to have our last sail completed when we arrived in Spanish Town, but thankful we made it safely. We got checked back in through customs and gave Ocean Star a little bath and extra love. During this time we were also given orders to pack up all of our belongings, however I am pretty positive no one followed through with that as we aren’t ready to leave these beautiful islands. Next, it was time to dive!! Our final dive was at The Rhone right off the coast of Salt Island. We loaded up the dinghies and headed off to the world under sea. The Rhone is a wreck dive, and we all were eager to swim through the old stern, bow, and propeller of the ship. Today this sunken ship is filled with beautiful coral, numerous fish, and even a few rays. We finished off our day with our last ocean shower. I’m definitely going to miss having shower time and playtime at once, but I know most of the crew is looking forward to a warm fresh shower within the next few days. To finish up our day of lasts we had our last dinnertime meal on the ocean, and we will be arriving in Tortola back at the port tomorrow. Our adventure at sea is coming to an end and although we are sad to be leaving island time soon, we miss all of our friends and family back home and cant wait to see you all!!
