We all woke up at about 7 today to dark gloomy skies that persisted throughout the day. We enjoyed a breakfast of eggs and muffins. After breakfast everybody went water skiing for about an hour and a half. The Dolphins went on their first research dive for their projects. After the dive the Dolphins went around the island to Monkey Point in order to tag turtles. After a while of searching for turtles we finally found one. It took us about 25 minutes of chasing and free diving one of the instructors finally caught the turtle. We took the turtle back to one of the cats. We measured and tagged it. While the Dolphins were doing this the Neptunes went to a nearby cave and thoroughly explored it. At the cave they found lobsters and rocks they could jump off of. Everyone met at the beach where we are going to have our BBQ. Everybody was at the beach and we all had a great time.
