Saving the Coral Populations and Diving the RMS Rhone!

The day started at 7:30 today! We had an 8:00 taxi to the Marina and we were told to be at the cattle guard by 7:45. We had breakfast at the marina today; I ate a banana, banana bread (cake), a cinnamon apple nutrigrain bar, and, of course, Pops. We then loaded our BCDs and regs into the boat....

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.

Bubble Baths

We are scurried to get our stuff together for another eventful day of adventure in the ocean. We met at the cattle guard, and walked...

The plane held at most 30 people, and had two spinning propellors...

Day 5 and 6: The replanting of the coral and diving of the Rhone.

I am going to be writing over two days so it might be a little long. Yesterday we woke up and had a 8 o'clock bus to catch to the marina for a full day of diving. The dive was where wewere going to find coral fragments to plant. We found six pieces almost immediately and we were...

Day 2 of the trip (Wednesday): The first real day

I was so tired after I got off the plane last night that I did not think that the boat ride was going to be fun or that when we met the instructors, who were driving the boat, that they were going to be happy because it was ten o'clock and they were having to pick up rowdy teenagers...
