The crew and science instructors were ferried ashore at 0800 to catch a cab up to Oalie Beach this morning to visit “Barb’s Invertebrate Lab” (marine petting zoo). Much of the taxonomy and classification that has been covered in the marine biology class was reinforced at this hands-on lab, where the shipmates got to hold some of the sea creatures, including Barb’s pet sea turtle, Crush. Following that, many spent the afternoon exploring the quiet streets of Nevis’ capital city. I think the time to stroll around and catch up on emails to friends and family was a nice diversion. As I write this, I am full of chili and cornbread and everyone is preparing for the Marine Biology lecture. PS: We will be setting sail for Grenada Friday morning and will be out of email contact for the next few days.
