meaning of sea legs after returning to dry land!

Sailing in the Virgin Islands was an experience I’ll never forget! The people I met and the experiences I had were truly life-changing. My Virgin Islands Tall Ship Adventure began the first day when three of my shipmates and I took a dingy with Captain Cactus out to the Talofa, our home for the next week. Captain Cactus didn’t let us waste any time, so we had a quick lunch, put on our swimsuits and jumped off! Of course we didn’t just jump off the boat. We had a splat line with which we swung into the water - like Tarzan! I was the first brave victim (volunteer) to jump off, but I would not be the last! After enjoying the view and playing a quick round of Bananagrams (which would ultimately become our favorite game), Captain Cactus took the four of us out to a ship wreck site where we learned how to snorkel!
|Holding a starfish was one of my favorite experiences.|
While this is just an example of how one day from our week went, I learned more than just how to snorkel and sail a 100-foot tall ship which was an amazing experience. I truly feel the friendships I made on this trip will last me forever because we were together every second of the trip. The reason we all got along was because we all shared aa interest in boating and trying new things. Now we have a Facebook group to keep up with each other! We are all still posting pictures and most of our posts in the group involve, “Remember when we….” and, “ That was so much fun!”. I hope to have a destination next year with these girls, and I am really excited to meet more new people!
