Days 5 and 6 in the BVI

Day 5 and 6 Great last two days in the BVI. Yesterday, the day started with an early morning rise as usual. We had breakfast at the Marina in Casey's office which consisted of bagels, cereal, and fruit. After that, we headed toward the boats and assembled our gear. We also loaded the cinder blocks onto the boat which would...

Day 4 in the BVI

Day 4 Great fourth day in the BVI. Instead of the roosters waking me up this morning, I awoke to the sound of Mr. Kirby knocking on our cottage door. We were all exhausted and had a great sleep. Quick showers ensued with very little dialogue within the cabin as everyone was still tired. We headed down to the...

Day 3 in the BVI

Day 3 Great third day in the BVI. I woke up bright and early at 7 to numerous bird sounds. They were very loud and obnoxious. After a quick shower, I headed down to the commissary to have breakfast. It consisted of assorted fruits, pop tarts, donuts, and yogurt. Staying at the commissary, we were then lectured by Dr. Shannon...

Day 2 in the BVI

Day 2 Great second day in the BVI. I was woken by the crow of the obnoxious rooster at 7 AM. Though it was early, a quick shower got me ready for the day. After packing my snorkel, fins, and new underwater camera, I headed down to the commissary for a quick breakfast. I was met there by Casey...

Day 1 in the BVI

Day 1 Finally back again in Virgin Gorda. Last night after a long day of travel, travel that included two flight delays, we arrived at the always lovely Guavaberry Resort. We were assigned to our rooms and I returned to the cottage "Plum Tree" with fellow Marine 2 guys Tucker Reed, Joe Wengierski, and Guy Harris. The rookie Nick Byrne...

Marine Bio 2 week 1

1. Why you signed up for marine bio 2 I signed up for Marine Bio 2 for numerous reasons. First and foremost, I had a blast last year in Marine Bio 1 in the BVI. The Dive BVI crew, Mr. Kirby, and Doc made it an experience I will never forget. It was the best combination of learning and fun...

Last few days in the BVI

Interesting last few days in the BVI. On tuesday we woke up with an early 7:45 rise to start our last day. We then headed upto our teachers' cabin where we had a light breakfast. It was the first time we were instructed not to bring our diving gear out with us. And instead of Glen giving us a...

Day 5 in the BVI

Great fifth day in the BVI. Woke up as usual at 7:45 and waited at the cattle guard at 8:15 for Glen to pick us up. At about 8:30 we arrived at the dock and set up our gear for diving. We had a small breakfast consisting of muffins and juice. We had a semi-long boat ride out to...

Day 4 in the BVI

Great fourth say in the BVI. It was another early rise thanks to the wild roosters living nearby. Glen picked us up at 8:30 as usual, but took us strait to the dock this time. There, a light breakfast consisting of muffins and yogurt waited for us. We all sat and ate quickly, eager to board our boats. After...
