This morning, we played on the stone beach and I snorkeled with Dad. I saw some giant clams and other fish. Then we got to sail! We put all the sails up and sailed for about two hours until the wind stopped. Dad and I were both glad we got to really sail. This afternoon we found a cool beach with lots of tidal pools with sea urchins and crabs. I got to hold a sea urchin - I thought it would stink me or something, but it just felt prickly. After dinner, Dad and I decided to sleep out on the deck under the stars. We fell asleep looking for shooting stars. It started raining in the middle of the night, so we had to run back inside, but it was fun.

Today is our last day on the boat - I can't believe it. We motored to a beach where Dad and mom went for a run then Luqmin and mom tricked me into going for a swim. Later, I also fell off the ladder into the ocean with all my clothes on when we were going into Gocek - two times in one day! Luckily, the water is not cold!

Tonight we had our last meal on the boat - we bought a special chocolate cake in Gocek and Nevraz put sparklers on it to celebrate! Then we had a last challenge game with Luqmin. It has been a great seven days! Even when Luqmin made me eat tomatoes for breakfast and made me clean my plate at every meal. He has six younger brothers, so he is good at it and he is also lots of fun. He told me he was a commando in the army and he had to eat bugs, so tomatoes aren't so bad.
