Location: Sommer's Bay
We woke up and went to the beach to meet up YEP studies. YEP is a youth empowerment program here in the BVI, and we got to hang out with them while we planted mangrove trees. We also cooked a traditional island dish called johnnycakes (which were delicious) Then we played sharks and minnows the ocean with them. Then we moved the boat to a new bay to explore some amazing caves with a little free time to explore. We were so lucky to come across a huge, wooden, catamaran built in western Africa and sailed to the BVI. It just so happened that the people we met yesterday were onboard! So we were invited onboard to check it out! It was really cool, nothing made of plastic, everything made of wood. We jumped off the side doing flips and talking with the sailors. After that, we moved the boat to Sommer’s Bay for beach BBQ. We are excited about tonight’s BBQ!
