Location: West End, Tortola
We woke up this morning feeling anxious about our upcoming departure. We soon forgot about this during our hike, all until we reached the top of spyglass, where we all had to realize that this was, in fact, real, we are going to leave for our homes the next morning, and we will never meet each other again under the same circumstances, with all the same people. After the hike, we proceeded to enjoy our last day on our yacht in the Caribbean, by swimming/snorkeling in the ocean, and sunbathing for our last time this summer. Then we had to start cleaning/packing, a job that would consume most of our last day, but we luckily finished in good time for our last BBQ. We finished any shopping we needed doing while in the BVI, and enjoyed some drinks, with the friends that we had made, and hopefully will remain friends with for the rest of our lives. We then auctioned the Lifeworks flag onboard the boat, a flag that would no longer be produced, due to the rebranding of Lifeworks. We auctioned the flag in pieces, were the most preferred piece was sold for 70 USD to the highest bidder, the second most preferred price sold for 50 USD, and the third sold for 35 USD, while the rest of us paid 20 USD. All of the money would be donated to one of the charitable organizations that we had worked with, which ranged from special needs schools to the local coast guard, VISAR. We then went to our last group meeting, which included ActionQuest, where we learned a lot more about what kind courses the people around us were taking, and what other courses that were possible for us to attend during our upcoming years. We then returned to our boat, where we divided the pieces, and signing each other’s with sweet comments, all before we enjoyed our last night of sleep together at our yacht in the Caribbean.
