Location: GHP, Peter Island

This morning started off quite well, especially since we awoke to the smell of five pounds of bacon cooking on the stove after our first full night of sleep since our passage to the BVI. After a delicious breakfast (including the aforementioned bacon), we gathered in the cockpit to discuss the BA we needed to do. After doing a full soapy deck scrub, a little of rust-busting, and organizing the galley, we all retreated to different shady spots on the boat to study for our Oceanography exam, which we took tonight. This afternoon we were surprised by the Deliverance boat, which we used as an excuse to take a break from studying. We sat at midships while they pulled up, surveying the possible goods we could buy. After we stocked up on all the nutritious items we sailors crave, such as M&M cookie ice cream sandwiches, Coke, and Pringles, we once again retired to our study time while Joe and Emma did some of their divemaster training. As we feasted on sausage, mashed potatoes, and salad for dinner, we discussed whether we were sunset or sunrise people, and I think it’s safe to say we’ve seen our fair share of both on this trip. Now off to our oceanography exam. Wish us luck that we studied our waves and current patterns enough!
