Location: Nelson's Dockyard, Antigua

Everyone woke up this morning a little relieved to be able to use dock bathrooms here in Antigua. After chowing down on Tings delicious French toast we all got ready for our second day hike of the trip. On the hike we saw the Pillars of Hercules as well as some tide pools where we had a mini oceanography lecture on tide pool ecology and the tiny fish that live in them. Two lectures and some fried rice later we had some time to work on our group research projects and to explore Nelsons Dockyard. After showering in the rain we all gathered around for the nightly squeeze where I asked what everyones favorite childhood TV shows were. Notable responses included Spongebob Squarepants, Dragon Tales, Clifford the Big Red Dog and Rugrats. Finally, we did an afternoon hike along side our new dog friend up to Shirley Heights where I am sitting now enjoying a cheeseburger, island music and a beautiful view.
