Location: St. Eustatius
As any good day out at sea would begin, we started with breakfast and a side of MTE (sailing class). After class, armed with sandwiches, water, hiking shoes and motivation, we hiked up the Quill, the island’s volcano. Upon reaching the top, the crew could decide to walk along the crater’s rim, hike down into the crater, or go back to enjoy a longer shore time in town. Ryan and I decided to walk down into the crater of the volcano. It was rather rocky, but it was very interesting to observe how some trees had managed to populate the volcanic soil on the inside of the crater.
After dinner we went back to shore for some more thanksgiving celebration, and to say our goodbyes to Statia. Tomorrow we are sailing to Saba!
