Location: Soufriere, St. Lucia
This morning we woke up to delicious french toast and, even more importantly, the sun, which we hadn’t seen first thing in the morning for the last two days. After Oceanography class, where we learned about beaches and shoreline processes, the whole crew assembled on deck to begin passage prep. Leaving St. Vincent, we embarked on our 45 miles (rainy!) passage to St. Lucia, during which we threw a few bottles with messages into the water (let us know if you happen to find one!). On the way to St. Lucia, Tor showed us how to process the three fresh lobsters we had bought in St. Vincent while Capt. Ben told us how to cook them. We had delicious lobster and scallop tacos for dinner while sitting under the stars. We finally reached St. Lucia at around 20:10, and after clean up, we are all off to a well-deserved sleep!
