A night of light squalls and some hardcore helming brought us closer than ever before to Rihanna’s house. We started off the morning refreshed and ready to go. Anna and Mo got to work right away in the galley making bread and prepping for lunch, while Margaux and I met with Lolo to do some divemaster stuff. After lunch, we took a Marine Biology exam, which we all passed with flying colors (probably). We were then graced with a lecture on fisheries by the incredible Samothy, who teaches us every day how to be more environmentally conscious (and how to dance like a boss). This will be our last Oceanography lecture for a while, as we’re starting the classroom lessons for !!!scuba diving!!! in the next few days. We’re getting the classroom portions done early so that we’re all set to !!!DIVE!!! as soon as we arrive in the Caribbean. If you couldn’t tell, the stoke levels are high. The afternoon was calm, with people splitting their time between reading, watching movies, doing laundry, and catching up on some sleep. Mo served up a dinner that was insanely good; Tim even claimed it was some of the best curry he’d ever had on Argo. As always, we closed the day out with a squeeze. My question for the group was, “What is one book you think everyone should read?” Answers included The Lorax by Dr. Seuss, Candide by Voltaire, and The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. Overall, it was another awesome day of passage!!! P.S. Hi Will!!
