Location: Puerto Morelos, Mexico

Today we reached land in Mexico after a 2-day passage from Roatan. We quite literally were on land as Argo ran aground coming into Puerto Morelos. However, with patience from our captain and teamwork aboard, we were free in no time. We are docked in a lovely marina, next to the resort called Coco de Mio. After a long day of “Boat Appreciation,” we all tried to get some last-minute studying time for Matty’s Marine Bio exam. Tomorrow we have our biggest paper due for Oceanography, so tonight we will be making last-minute touches to them (or writing the whole thing for those of who are slackers). Overall it was a wonderful passage to Mexico with our new watch teams. Watch team one is often very quiet. We are all very excited about eating lots of guacamole for the next few days.
