Location: Barbados

After a very eventful night last night, we all had an early wake-up call at 7 am. Around 7:20 am, we all found out we had an oceanography class before breakfast, which was a first for everyone. Shortly after that, we all headed up to breakfast at around 7:50 for Tom’s amazing blueberry muffin bake. After cleanup, we all headed out to the taxis at 9:20 to go to Harrison Caves. We all had an amazing time at the caves and got some amazing pictures to send home. While driving there and back, we drove the roads that were in the latest season of Outer Banks and got to see one of the houses/compounds that was in the show. Harrison’s caves were also the caves where the last episodes of outer banks were filmed. After the caves, we all had free time to roam the streets of Barbados and pick up some much-needed groceries. Tom, Nate, Benno, Kip, Charlton, and I all went to a beachside restaurant that had some amazing food and a sweet view. After lunch, we all hopped on the “bumping buses,” which are the public transportation options in Barbados. These buses are very interesting and consist of a straight-piped diesel engine with loudspeakers in them. We rode back to the boat on two different buses and then snorkeled around the marina for a couple of hours. While snorkeling, we started to gather some data for our group research project, which is how fish are attracted to music. So we put a speaker and phone in a dry bag and sent it down. The data gained today was that Smooth Trunkfish (which are very cute; look them up) really enjoy listening to Freebird by Lynyrd Skynyrd. After messing around underwater, we all came up with Tom’s absolutely amazing chicken parm. The squeeze question of the day, thought of by yours truly, was, “If you had 30 days to live, what are three things that must be done?”. A very notable answer to the question was being adopted into a tribe of gorillas and saving the chief from a cheetah attack. Overall, we all had a very fun day. DRIZZ out
