Location: Marigot Bay, St. Lucia

Today we woke up to scrumptious sticky buns/biscuits and then had a fun Marine Bioscience lab where we touched and studied sponges, mollusks, and cnidarians. We saw small shrimp-like critters under the microscope. Then we got our dive gear together for our third reef check at 10 o’clock but only ended up sitting around for an hour and a half. Once we finally got into the water, we each counted our specific marine group. Mine was invertebrates which basically consisted of counting tons and tons of sea urchins. Afterward, we quickly ate lunch which was a cheesy casserole. It was really good and a first for me. We then motored to Marigot Bay. Casey, Mark, and I attempted to bag the sediment Casey collected but had some problems due to the wind and things breaking. We then docked for the first time since we left and had fresh showers! We had sweet and sour meatballs and then headed to Dolittle’s for our night off. We had a great time playing pool and cards.
