Last Day

The morning came little later than usual on the last day of this great trip. The teachers allowed us to sleep in until 9 and once again I skipped my run to maximize sleep. A small breakfast waited For us near the teachers cabin and the group quickly ate and we left for a day of community service....

Day 5 – coral replanting

Another long night of fraternizing and staying awake pointlessly and the cabins one by one went to sleep after splitting up. I slept very well and woke up just in time to leave to meet with everyone, maximizing my sleep and obviously skipping the planned workout due to unexpected soreness from yesterday's run. Somewhat energized from extra sleep, the...

Day 4 – Day of Diving

Day 4 started very bright and early for Jack and me. Alarms blaring at 6, Jack woke me up and we both put on our running clothes in a groggy haze.

It was two days ago on day 4, so I don't remember the morning except we had breakfast and than left immediately for the marina. We got to the marina with an attitude some have recorded to be intimidating. It was coral replanting day. DuHduhDUMMMMMM. So we hopped in trusty sea monkey and set sail, or motor. We got...

BVI day 3

After another rockin night of blogging, we all headed back to the casas and passed out. An unfortunately quick sleep resulted in another tired morning and a muggy morning. We left to the commissary of breakfast then a presentation on sea turtles, how to catch them, what they eat, etc. Soon after, everyone jumped on the bus and we...

BVI day two

After a night of successful blogging we settled down for bed and fell asleep. The next day came quickly especially since I didn't wake up until 5 min before we had to leave. Although I cut it close, I grabbed all my gear and made it on time to head up to the baths. The baths are these big...
