Day 3

Today's wake up time was a vicious 7 am, so I stumbled out of bed at 7:30 and threw together my things in 5 minutes. Our first stop was the commissary for a nutritious breakfast of fruit and donuts and then off to the marina. After collecting ourselves no our her we boarded the boat and headed...

Eventful day 3 on the island

Once again woken up around 7:30, but this time by Mr Kirby. I was experiencing a tremendous sleep, so I was frustrated to have to awake, but once I remembered that today we would be diving in and snatching turtles I was ready to go. Once again we were treated to a nice quick breakfast. We...

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 4

Surprisingly once again I was not woken up by my dive partner, Clayton Caldwell, but instead I was woken up by my alarm clock on my Ipad. After taking a shower, my roommates and I walked down to the street to wait for the taxi. When everyone got to the street, we got on the taxi and drove down...

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...

Day 3 in BVI

Man oh man was this morning early. I'm almost sure I didn't sleep more than a few minutes. Anyway, after a nice breakfast and a very well done presentation from Dr. Shannon Gore on sea turtles, we packed up and headed out to try and tag some ourselves. In the presentation Dr. Gore mentioned how over time sea...

Day 1

Even after the longest day of my life, I was still unable to sleep due to an attack on my innocence. While in bed, my back began to itch and so I itched it. Wondering what caused the itch, I turned on the lights and was terrified when I found a two inch spider on my pillow. ...

The final day

Yesterday started of with me waking up and taking a shower after Clayton and Mat finished their shower. After we all finished with our shower, we walked down to the road, so Glenn could pick us up and take us to the BVI Office for breakfast. I had a donut and some cereal. Then we drove the boat to...

Day 1

Day one started off with Clayton Caldwell, who is rooming with Matt Mizzini and I, waking me up at 6:30. After I woke up I hopped in the shower and walked down to the street to wait for the taxi. The taxi dropped us off at Old Yarde, where we ate our breakfast, which consisted of eggs, blue berry...
