Day 7: Eat, Sleep, Dive
Posted: Tue, Jul 15, 2014
Location: Vixen Point, Gorda Sound
Today has been super busy and it’s not even over yet! When we woke up this morning it was rainy but we still had a great breakfast of French toast. By the time we were done, it had cleared up and we went on our dive. Then the Dolphins worked on underwater naturalist and the Neptunes went on their Fish ID dive. On the Dolphin dive we saw a lionfish and a turtle! It was awesome! Afterwards we got to go to port for lunch. Then, the Neptunes had a lecture with Tor and the Dolphins went snorkeling in the mangroves. On the way, we saw a huge nurse shark, three green turtles and a spotted eagle ray. While snorkeling we saw sea cucumbers, a conch and baby barracudas. Then, we all went to the beach to play volleyball and talk to kids from other boats. Next we headed back to our boat to shower and get ready for the beach BBQ and party! Today was super fun and I’m sure tomorrow will be, too!
