Location: Sandy Spit
Today we woke up to a beautiful view of the island Jost Van Dyke. After a quick breakfast, we took the dinghies ashore to the site of a new office building that we will be painting tomorrow. We had some shore time where we met some local students who would be joining us on our sail today. Every two Lifeworks students were paired up with one other student; we showed them around the boat and got to know where each other is from. After a quick sail to Great Thatch Island we split up into three groups; group one went to a beach to clean up trash, group two went snorkeling, and group three went on a short hike. After a fun filled day out on the water, we returned to Jost Van Dyke having forged many new friendships with the students. To end an exciting day, we met up with the other ActionQuest boats on the tiny island of Sandy Spit for a barbecue dinner and bonfire.
