Come Sail Away

Thank you Kassidy! She met the general manager of On Deck which is a sailing company down here and got us the hook up to go sailing! It was so much fun. There were two boats that went out at the same time, ours which had me, Kassidy and the 2 crew members Tom and Wes, and another boat that had 2 crew members and 3 guys on board. After sailing around for a while we were able to race and we were ruled the winners because the other boat broke the rules. It was fun to learn the different terms and to help take the sails up and down and switch them from side to side. The only sad part is we didn't get very many action shots of us helping with the sales, but we got a lot of other good pictures so that was fun! All in all it was an awesome experience and I would love to go sailing again!

Pics from the BVI

I posted a little while ago about going to the British Virgin Islands so here are some pictures from that day! It was such a great experience. We were on a charter tour that took us to The Baths at Virgin Gorda first, then we went to Marina Cay which is a little island off of Tortola (this is where we were had our pictures taken in that photo booth!) where we had lunch, then we went snorkeling just off of Tortola and after that headed over to Jost Van Dyke. It was such a great way to visit all of the items and not have to worry about anything. They gave us breakfast on board plus tons of snacks and it was an open bar (which obviously for us was the option of juice, water or soda!). The funniest part about that was when we told the girl we didn't drink her reaction was, "You three must be the only people on St. Thomas that don't drink!" ha ha funny but kind of true! All around though it was so much fun! Thanks for going with me Kassidy and Brynne!

At the begining of November Kassidy and I had the chance to go parasailing! It was one of the things that I really wanted to do while living down here. If you have never gone, I highly recommend it! It was amazing! We had 2 of the nicest guys for our crew, and since we were the only appointment they had that day we had a lot of fun. They took us up in the air for around 30 minutes (usually you get maybe 10 minutes) then let me and Kassidy take turns driving the boat! It was really fun and I wish there was enough time left to do it again! Sorry this took so long for me to post these!
