Location: Vixen Point, Gorda Sound
The day started with some french toast made by Nathan and Caroline. After breakfast, we set up our gear for the naturalist dive. Both Neptunes and Dolphins had to identify five vertebrates, four invertebrates, and two plants. The reef was very diverse, so this was no problem. After the dive, we swam, went wake-boarding, and ate lunch. Then, we moved to Vixen Point and were visited by our seagull friend, Bill, who just wanted a free ride on our boat. When we arrived, the Dolphins went snorkeling through a mangrove ecosystem and learned about sea turtle nesting on the beach.
Meanwhile, the Neptunes reviewed their knowledge on boat diving and wake-boarded some more. We all showered and are currently getting ready for the dance party and BBQ on the beach tonight. It’s going to be so much fun!
