Location: Savannah Bay
Breakfast at 7:30 this morning came very early, making us all realize just how important it is to go to sleep at a decent hour. After having breakfast, we sailed over to Savannah Bay and anchored for the first time. This means that our first set of night watches start tonight. While some are not looking forward to waking up in the middle of the night, I am excited about the experience. I think it will be very peaceful to be under the stars with the wind blowing and the waves crashing all around me. Those of us who were already scuba certified had the opportunity to go for a dive and review our skills. It felt great to get back into the water and dive. We saw many little fishies and a few baby stingrays. The water is a stunning turquoise color that I could look at for days. While we were diving, the others went for a hike to see the windward side of the island. They said there were big cliffs overlooking the water. After hiking, they went for a swim at the beach. They even saw a baby reef shark! I think the shark scared some of the girls. We’ve already become close as a group even though this is only day three. I am excited to see how we all grow together in the many days to come.
Peace and blessing all,
PS: Mom and Dad, I promise I’m wearing lots of sunscreen.
