Location: Great Harbor, Peter Island
This morning I woke up to the feeling of cold air conditioning blowing out of the vents since we were docked in Rhode Town and had a different power source. After breakfast, we loaded up the dinghies and went to VISAR(Virgin Islands Search and Rescue) to do our community service activity for the day. When we got there, we met with Niguel, one of the head medics and had an introduction on VISAR and the work they do. It is an all-volunteer, nonprofit that’s motive is to keep the people on the Virgin Island waters safe. After we asked our questions, we went outside and began painting two ginormous containers, a bright orange color that had been starting to rust. We also painted, cleaned up and weeded around the outside of the building. After lunch, we did the final touches and went back to the boat. Showers on shore were next. It was a race to see who could get to the showers first to have the most water pressure which Bailee and I won. We then had a surprise of pizza and ice cream from BZ and Alex, which we munched on while we set sail to Great Harbor, Peter Island to have the second surprise of the night. That surprise was getting to go on VISAR’s dinghy, which gets up to 46 knots. After that, we made bracelets and anklets made of cortege to represent our Lifeworks experience.
