Location: Tobago Cays

The morning was marked by the announcement that “big red,” our generator, would not be working for our time in the Tobago Cays. However, our power situation is not dire, as our trusty main engine alternator is able to charge our batteries sufficiently. We must, however, be careful to continue to conserve water and power. We motored to the Tobago cays and spent the afternoon engaging in windsurfing, snorkeling, swimming, and working on literature reviews. The evening ended with a Mexican fiesta and a nightcap of oceanography – a taxonomy slide show of Beaker and C-tals invertebrate underwater photos
