After a long day of excursions yesterday, the urge to stay in bed was quite tempting this morning. My “good mornings” were met mainly with groans for all except Rocco, our head chef today, who sprung into breakfast action. This morning, we were served the most top-tier version of the Seamester brekkie go-to: yogurt and granola. After breakfast and cleanup, the students broke into dive groups for our first “fun dive,”- meaning the dive was not meant to test skills but rather just for fun. This means students were able to bring GoPros and get some awesome underwater shots. While the first group went diving, Zoe, Ben, Sammy, and Hannah caught up on school work and did their best to manage to get the mud off their hiking shoes from yesterday’s very muddy adventure. Rocco, Evan, Jack, Alev, and Ella did the same when they came up from their dive before getting lunch underway. Today, the divers saw lots of fish and an eel!

For lunch, the chef and sous-chefs prepared quesadillas and tomato soup before a very hectic cleanup party! Just as we finished lunch, it began to downpour. Simultaneously, Heather returned to the boat with clean laundry and provisions, which we did our best to squirrel away out of the rain. Despite the craziness of trying to dry dishes in a rainstorm, it was quite fun. After the rain dissipated, we carried on with a few classes this afternoon. First, Ben taught a marine bio class on microorganisms. Afterward, I taught the 2nd Navigation Master lesson, which included determining bearings to waypoints on the chart. In my (biased) opinion, it is super cool to learn how navigation was done before the days of fancy GPS and auto-helm, and I hope the class agrees! After class, it was time for some passage prep! I like to think of passage prep as adventure prep as we prepare Ocean Star for another journey tomorrow. She is ready to go! After passage prep, we all enjoyed a swim and some chill time before dinner. Some of us even saw a green sea turtle poke its head out of the water a few times. We ended the evening with probably the best sunset of the trip so far over a dinner filled with laughs. I feel so fortunate to be experiencing so many wonderful things in the Caribbean with the Ocean Star family.
