I woke up to the smell of bacon. Finally after two days of watch I got to sleep a little later and get up at 0715. I started my day off with a warm bowl of oatmeal garnished in coconut and mango, a banana muffin and the bacon of course. After breakfast we did our morning chores and then headed over to the east side of Green Cay on the small boat to do a little snorkeling. We saw a bunch of different fish, sea stars, a barracuda, and a stingray. It was such a great way to wake up and start the day. After snorkeling for around an hour and a half we had a history class on sea shanties and sang a ton as a group. Once we finished class we had lunch and got underway to head back to the Gallow's Bay Dock. A very thorough deck wash and a lot of sun filled up all of my time before our sunset sail. We prepped the sails got our reds on and greeted our guests for the evening. We had a fun sail but were only going 3-4 knots on pretty calm waters so nothing too exciting happened but it was so nice to be on the water. Every time we go out on a sunset sail it always seems so surreal and just breathtaking. Being on this boat has already taught me so much and I can't wait to continue this amazing journey. I topped the night off with ukulele and many laughs with the crew. Its my favorite part of the day. Being with everyone and spending time as a family. Until next time.
