We enjoyed a sleep-in this morning (!) which was much appreciated as we come closer to the end of an action-packed two weeks. Shortly after our jolly brigade awoke, we consumed a delicious and healthy breakfast of cinnamon rolls, and set sail for an amazing morning at the Baths.
We arrived at the Baths after a calm sail, secured ourselves on a mooring ball (on the first try!), and swam over to the beach to enjoy a pleasant morning in the sun, exploring the intricate maze and trails of tall boulders that the Baths is known for.
Having had our fill of fun, we all swam back to the boat where we cleaned, ate lunch, and once again set sail to rendezvous at Cooper Island and jumped into an afternoon of watersports and fruity virgin cocktails on the shore.
With enjoyed dinner with a special guest of Mike Liese, the Founder/Director of SC, followed by showering and once again set sail for Trellis Bay, Beef Island as our last stop of the day. On our way, we spotted a pretty rare loggerhead turtle and also were caught in a small squall on the water where we, for the second time this trip, achieved speeds previously unheard of by mere mortals 🙂
We arrived at our desired location and went ashore, enjoying a delicious meal before heading back to the boat where we enjoyed our last night onboard together as one unstoppable crew.
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.
