Day 13: Sharks and Beach BBQs
Posted: Mon, Jun 30, 2014
Location: Sommer’s Beach, Tortola
Today the salty and sea-hardened crew of Therapy embarked on a mission to rival the Odyssey. We commenced with a healthy breakfast of eggs, fruit and lemon poppy-seed muffins. After a short cruise to refill the tanks, the Dolphins went to Second Wind. On Second Wind we completed a short and uneventful survey dive followed by lunch and beach time. We then returned to Second wind where Marina performed an awesome dissection of a small baby shark, cutting open its underside to reveal a stomach filled with 8 half digested fish. Afterwards we learned how to properly tag a turtle with a hilarious performance by Jess. Meanwhile the Neptunes scuba dove, seeing a cool sting ray and chilled on Mahi Mahi followed by some beach time. In total it was a fun and fascinating day! We are now leaving to gorge ourselves on burgers and hotdogs at the beach BBQ.
