Today was a good day. Since our Marine Biology logbooks were due first thing after breakfast we all added our finishing touches. Due to the excess amounts of coffee being made, everyone was up and ready for the day to start by 0600. After everyone handed in their logbooks on time, the day was free to dive the reef, jump on the Fitzroy Island trampline, or study for tonight’s VHF Radio exam. Most of the crew studied while some of us went diving and drove the dingy. We saw whales today and it wasn’t even a surprise. We are used to it by now. I hope I will continue to see whales 50 feet off our beem when I return home to Arizona!
