Location: Savanna Bay, Virgin Gorda

This morning we woke up around 6:45 am in the beautiful Savannah Bay. Last night was very windy, so everyone ended up inside the cabin with a good night’s sleep. A little Shakira music got us all up and moving. After a breakfast of eggs, cereal, and muffins, we split into our two groups; Dolphins and Neptunes. My group went on our navigation dive. It was very interesting! While we were learning how to use a compass, the Neptunes did the same but on the beach. We met back up for a tuna fish sandwich lunch and then split up once more. My group went on a small hike and learned all about the organisms. We saw while the Neptunes completed their navigation dive. Around 5:30, we all came back to our boat, Mahi Mahi, for a dinner of rice, beans, and salad. Everyone is now showering in the ocean and getting ready for the night dive lecture. All is good, and everyone has become so comfortable around each other! It’s so fun to learn about the different cultures and lifestyles all of my shipmates come from. We laugh and laugh and laugh. Anyway, today was wonderful, and I’m sure tomorrow will be just as great!
