POST #6 Final Blog Post from the ABLE Florida Trip

Day 5:

Hayley Smith shared this final blog post from the ABLE Sailing Miami trip:

The most terrifying thing to wake up to is a swarm of mosquitoes hovering in your bedroom and your roommate running out of the room before you could even notice it. But as the morning went on, we all sat down to an egg breakfast and laughs. Then we took off to our next destination, which was No Name Harbor, right where we started from the beginning. All the boys headed to the beach and faced their challenge with jelly fish. Beneta and I took our own adventure, when we were trying to catch up to the rest of the group. But we took a wrong turn, met raccoons, had to learn a bit of Spanish, and decided 5 minutes after sitting on the beach that we had to head back because we were obviously in the wrong place. After all the madness we sat down for our burger, salad, and pineapple. Then Ken and Rachel treated us all to key lime pie and some great conversation. We all sat around for our late talk and to thank the captains for a great week. Now tomorrow we say good bye to sunny Florida Keys and Miami and head back home to our families for the holidays. Thank you all so much for giving us our opportunity to bond and know people we did not know before.

Goodnight everyone, see you tomorrow!

-Hayley Smith

Haley, sounds like a pretty exciting last day at sea. I heard the raccoons weren't very friendly to you all, but yes...mosquitoes can be awful. Have a safe trip home everybody and thanks so much for sharing all your stories. It was so much fun two follow along

Wait! The raccoons spoke Spanish? Just kidding...sounds like a good adventure for your last day.

Thanks to Ken, Rachel, and all the students on the trip for so diligently sharing their experiences with us and Kelly for providing technical blog support back home. And thanks to the parents, faculty and staff for posting comments and making this a fun and interactive element of the adventure. Safe travels home everyone, and have a great holiday break!

Thank you, Friends, for blogging and sharing your experiences with our community. Because of your words I can almost smell the salt air and see the mosquitos and raccoons! Safe travels home and happy (PA/NJ) holidays.
