The last day

Day 7: Given the chance to sleep in, I still woke up very early because of the roosters. They started making noise around 5am and I finally decided that it was time to get up around 6. Instead of just sitting there, I went on a long run. I took a similar path that I went on a few days...

Day 6: The Beginning of the End

Today started out later than expected. After a few days of intense cardio and working out, Christian and I decided to sleep in and skip our workout (Sunday is a day of rest thankfully). Casey of course decided to run which made us both feel guilty but it's ok in the end. Once we finally decided to wake up,...

Day 4 (kinda) and day 5

Day 4: no blog Day 5: Beep beep beep, my alarm clock goes off at 5:45 am. Christian and I wake up to go for a run. We meet up with Casey around 6:15 at the cattle guard to go on a relatively "easy" run. At first the run was flat and relaxing but soon afterwards it got steep...

Day 3 (My lucky number):

Today started out much later than expected. The night before I had set two alarms to wake up at 5:45am to join Casey on a run. It turns out that the time difference woke me up an hour later than expected. So, while I did have a late start to my day, it was nice to sleep in a...

Return to Paradise Day 1 and 2

Day 1/2 At 5 am my alarm clock went off after going to bed at 3 am (I could not sleep because of how excited I was). We headed to the airport, went through security, and then headed off to Miami. We jumped onto the next flight at then landed in Puerto Rico. Finally, we went to Tortola in...

Why did I take this course?

I took this course because I took Marine Biology 1 last year and I wanted to continue to study the course materials and see the improvement of the coral that our group transplanted last year. I also am fascinated by the ocean and love to study the fish and microscopic organisms that make it up.

Coral Transplanting and the Rhone Dive: Day 4 and 5

Today was another fantastic day in the BVI. We went to bed around 10:30 and slept in until around 7:15. We made coffee me got our bag ready for another long but extremely fun day. Glenn picked us up around 7:45 and we headed straight to the Marina. Once we pulled up Casey was waiting the for us with...

Turtles and Snorkeling: Day 3

Today was the first morning that I woke up feeling fully rested. We went to bed earlier than usual last night and that gave me a lot more energy for today and it was nice sleeping in until 7. After the usual morning routine of brushing my teeth, having some coffee, and talking to my roommates we all went...

The Second Day on the Island: The Baths and Ginger Island

This morning started off very similar to yesterday because we were woken up by a rooster and around 5:45. I got up and made some of the instant coffee that was being sold in the small convenient store (this store runs on the honor code and at the end of the trip you have to pay for everything that...
