We woke up this morning in Green Cay. It was beautiful, but a little windy. We ate french toast and bacon, but sadly Adam (our dope chef) got a nasty burn. After breakfast we cleaned and prepared the sails to get ready to sail to Buck Island. It was super windy and perfect conditions for our sail. We had both a science and navigation class underway. We anchored off Buck Island and small-boated in small groups to shore and jumped in the beautiful water immediately. When everyone got to shore we started a hike around the island. We saw pelicans, land crabs, cacti, and a bunch of cool air plants. We stopped at the top of Buck Island and took it all in. The view was beautiful, and the water was even prettier. We hiked back down and around the island to a pier, where we jumped off and did tricks. We swam around and snorkeled. Groups small boated back to the Roseway, and Cam, Holly, and I were in the last group. We were the last people on all of Buck Island which was really cool. We were greeted by piña coladas (virgin) by Morgan when we got back. We set sail back to Green Cay and had a great dinner, followed by a fun game of Adventure Island. Overall a great day!

(Shout-out Grandma Minnie, I love you!)
