The Ocean Classroom

This morning I woke up at 5 am to head up on deck for the final watch of the evening with Emily. The view was pretty incredible. We were able to point out many constellations and the hour went by pretty quickly. Breakfast was served at 7:30 (we eat like kings!). Following breakfast we had our introduction to Oceanography and Marine Biology session. After our session we all went ashore and took a stroll around to learn a little something about science classes. Our classroom is the Ocean! That’s pretty sweet. At 12 we had lunch and those of us who are not yet scuba certified headed out for our second dive. Each of us took turns practicing different maneuvers. It was a good time. When we got back some of us went for a quick swim and shower in the ocean while others pulled out a good book or card game. We did a few “chores” but nothing feels like work because we all do it together. Around 6 we had dinner and we are now getting ready for our Intro to sailing courses!!!! I think I am most excited for that aspect of the trip. So far life on a sailboat is awesome. Everyone gets along great and were all having fun getting to know each other. That sums up another fun and busy day on Argo! -Jen Montgomery skip of the day
