Location: Muskmelon Bay, Guana Island

Today was a later morning for us; we woke up at about 7:30 and made some pancakes as a family. At 8, the staff had a meeting on shore, which left the boats all to us which gave us the freedom to listen to our own music, have a dance party and have some very interesting conversations. When Elliot came back, he returned to the sight of 14 mesmerized individuals staring at a pineapple. After Anna and Maya returned from the staff meeting, we had to wait for Elliot to finish collecting all the recycling from the boats. Once we were underway on our short journey to Guana Island, we remembered that we forgot to collect our own recycling. Half way through our sail the small Pico sailing boat we were dragging behind us capsized and took us about an extra 30 minutes to flip it and get it out of the water. Once we reached Guana Island, we rafted (Tied up) with Catalinaville, our sister boat. As soon as we got there, the fun began and we jumped off the top of our boat and did a bunch of tricks. After our perfectly made lunch of quesadillas the water sports began, which included water skiing, wake boarding, knee boarding, sailing and learning to drive the dinghies. After a long fun day of many successful wipeouts including flying off the knee board going a little to fast just to realize my face and the water were gonna become very good friends, we all got to enjoy a lovely dinner as a family made by Griffin and Caitlin. After dinner, we got to watch a phenomenal documentary about fish. Then we got to enjoy the fresh breeze in front of the boat and fall asleep.
