Day 16: The Playgrounds
Posted: Wed, Jul 2, 2014
Location: Sandy Spit, Green Cay
Even though everyone was so exhausted fro the longest day ever yesterday, we all woke up at 6:30 to Amelia and Whit’s pancakes. After cleaning up, we moved the boat to Sandy Spit. There we dove the Playgrounds. The Neptunes saw a lot of cool stuff! The Dolphins worked on their research project. When we arrived back to the boat, we broke down our gear and got ready for lunch. Today it was Ramen noodles and sandwiches. After lunch we anchored and moored on the other side of Sandy Spit. There we had our second dive at the Playgrounds. Many people on our boat saw lionfish, sharks and eagle rays. By the time we got back to the boat again it was about 1:30pm. Dolphin students started on their research paper due on day 18 while Neptunes relaxed on board. After tanks were done pumping we moved back to our original position at Sandy Spit. around 4:30 pm we started our showers. After, Marissa and I hung out while Cheyenne read my book while the wonderful smell of beans and rice and perfectly seasoned franks wafted through the galley. After dinner we cleaned up and are now having a dance party while waiting for a ride to Mahi Mahi for Lifeworks.
