We started the day at White Bay. Wakeup was at 8am. Gabe and Eli were up early with Val and decided to make Oreo pancakes, bacon, toast, a fruit tray with apples, oranges, and mangoes, as well as fresh squeezed orange juice. The boat was ecstatic to wake up the the extravagant breakfast!
After breakfast the boat went on a snorkel. We saw a ton of coral and even an eel! For lunch we made meatball subs and the kids said that it was one of the best lunches they had on fleet. After lunch we began cleaning the boat and everyone had a party making the boats shiny and clean. After cleaning we sailed to Scrub Island which is near Beef Island.
Here, there is plenty of activities to do and it always has amazing views. While the Scrub dock was very hot, we kept the boat energy up by blasting Taylor Swift and Maroon 5. After working hard cleaning the boat on the docks we went to shore and hung out on Scrub. Everyone enjoyed the pools and stores on land. When shore time was done we headed back to the boats to get ready for the famous land showers. For dinner we had garlic bread, chicken, and veggies and for desert we made apple crumble! We ended the night on Scrub Island with a boat playdate 🙂
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.
