There are Actually Many Places Like Home

So the last day of being at the BVI was a little more relaxed. We woke up around 9:00, and that extra hour made a difference, as we now had even more time to sleep. We had breakfast over at Kirby, Gruninger, and Golab's cabin, consisting of huge freaking donuts, some yogurt, fruit bars, apples, and various...

Saving the Reef, one Piece of Coral at a Time

Today. The last day of diving here in the BVI. Gotta make this interesting. So today started like every previous day so far: wake up, back to sleep, get up, shower, change, bus, and breakfast. Today, however, was coral planting day. We mighty, manly men of Marine 2 went first to...

Two Days for the Price of One!

Yesterday, Friday, started very well, with birds chirping and the sun shining. We followed our usual morning schedule: wake up, sleep for ten more minutes, get out of bed, shower, pull our water out of the freezer, get our gear ready, head down to meet our ride, and head to breakfast. After breakfast, we soldiers of Jesuit...

In BVI, you watch camera.

So today started well, with the roosters waking me up early at exactly six in the morning. Once I got out of bed, I jumped into the shower and prepared myself for the work ahead. We headed out for breakfast at 8:00, chatting and enjoying the morning breeze. After a great breakfast of a bacon omelet...

The First Day of the Rest of our Week

Today started much like the first day at the BVI last year: alarms going off at 6:30 to wake us manly men up from our slumber. After waking up and taking showers, we headed down to meet our morning bus and bus driver, Glenn. By about 8:00 we were eating a hearty breakfast of bacon, eggs,...

I am taking Marine Biology 2 because I like diving, and the ocean is an awesome place. I mean, I think so. I also really enjoyed the course last year, so moving to the second level just makes sense. I can't wait to go visit the BVI again, and hopefully see tons of interesting and new...

Too Much Blog, Not Enough Space!

So I guess this would be two days worth of blogging mushed into one, but remembering things is difficult. So we woke up yesterday morning, got all our stuff together and headed to the taxi which took us to breakfast at the marina. After a nice breakfast filled with basking in the sun and talking, we put our...

Seeing a Turtle is Like Hugging Them with Your Eyes

So I think yesterday was my sisters birthday, and before I write my blog, I need to say Happy Birthday! Hope I got the day right this time, even if I was late in saying anything. Now back to me. Waking up this morning went way better than yesterday, since I know everyone reading was waiting to find out. But...

Failure to Identify Results in Failure

Waking up when you are supposed to be ready to leave is not a good way to start the day, but that is what I did this morning. Again, not a great way to start the day. However, we quickly headed to a hearty breakfast consisting of cereal, bread, yogurt, and some apples. Definitely a good start...
