Day 18: Wreck Alley
Posted: Sat, Jul 26, 2014
Location: Great Harbor, Peter Island
We woke up today with many different kinds of yummy cereals laid out on the table. We ate and cleaned before we grabbed our PFDs and got ready to sail. We sailed for over an hour to Wreck Alley. Once we were there, Neptunes did two wreck specialty dives, one once we got there and one after lunch. Since Dolphins finished writing their projects, they got to do two fun dives. We saw four wrecks, an Atlantic stingray, a southern stingray, and many colorful fish and coral. When we finally got our dive gear away at around 1:30 we swam with our new blow-up whale Matthias and our cameras! Then it was time to grab our PFDs and motor to GHP. We sat on the bow and practiced our Dolphin presentations. We jumped off the side of the boat to take our daily showers and soaped up! The same turtle kept popping up around the boat as we all gathered around Marina to make turks heads. It took me a couple of tries to make some of them but they all turned out really good! A delicious breakfast-for-dinner was served by the chefs, Isabel and Charlie, which contained pancakes, sausage, corn bread, fruit and scrambled eggs. Then it was finally time for Neptunes to go take their final exam on their knowledge reviews on Mahi Mahi. The Dolphins stayed on Second Wind and other Dolphins came to us. The Dolphins all presented fantastic and well-organized research projects. Isabel, Merry and I also included our Sea Fan Rap with our presentation. Overall it was another awesome day in one of my favorite places and I’m very happy I could spend it with the people here with me.
