CELC aboard Boundless Day 6
24 May 2011 | Glebe River Virginia
Oh the places we go … here are some of today’s highlights :
Today we went swimming a lot, literally! We jumped off Boundless, swam ashore, and snooped around. I found a lot of shotgun shells and bathed in blue clay. We had a huge clay fight, although the teachers, including Janine, disagreed with it. Then we swam back and Jeff flung apples and oranges at us with the water balloon launcher. It was difficult to catch them while we were still in the water!
The trip has been amazing, and I do not want to leave. Right now I am in a quiet cove with not a single other boat around. I LOVE it here in the quiet, relaxing area of the world.
Last night was a good sleep. I don’t remember what I dreamed about, but it was nice and calm. Jeff played music last night, and I sang some of the chorus. I feel a lot better today, but it is the last day here. Today I drove like Daddy – my wrist on the wheel and fingers on my chin … It was hot this morning. I could barely focus on math – I was sweating so. I think that it was Maria who had the idea to swim to the island, so I thought it was a nice way to cool down. We got there, and I started to throw mud at everyone. We were covered with mud after seconds. It made our skin soft … it was awesome!
“Life changing”, “eye-opening”, “helping”, “exhilarating”, “soothing”, “educational”. Today I finally mastered the Monkey’s Fist. It has taken me two days to get it! Today we swam to two different beaches. On the first beach there was spa clay. We gave each other facials and covered ourselves.
