Today, we woke up and prepared a breakfast buffet of yogurt, cereal, and bagels. After breakfast, we headed to shore on Cooper Island. On the island, we explored the boutiques and shops as well as the beautiful beach. We then headed back to the ship for a lunch of pesto chicken pitas.
After lunch, the crew gathered together to dinghy over to Cistern Rock to snorkel and later stand up paddled boarded near to our moored boat. Just before dinner, we went over to Salt Island for a sunset hike and took in the breathtaking views from the peak. After heading back to the boat, we showered and had a delicious dinner of pasta Bolognese to end the night!
More photos coming soon!
The greatest challenge during the program was staying entertained during the quarantine period. Not being able to leave your boat and not having a phone, which was a crutch against boredom, it was difficult at first to stay entertained.
