We did a two mile hike this morning up to Ram’s Head and enjoyed views of Tortola BVI and St. Croix USVI. Our guides as always are amazing and this mornings guide was Cindy from of all places, Londonderry NH! This afternoon we snorkeled, kayaked and took a tour of the mangroves and actually hit the microscopes in the VIERS lab. Dr. Stake delivered a lecture late this afternoon on the geologic and geographic history of St. John, followed by a great presentation on coral reef systems throughout the globe.
One of our students turned 21 today….the celebration included singing and cupcakes. In honor of Chelsea’s birthday, she and her cabin mates will be our guest bloggers this evening…..don’t go away!
“DOCK TALK FROM CABIN TWO”
Today was Chelsea’s 21st birthday. We may or may not have forgotten, being slightly delusional at getting up so early. However, we celebrated the day in ocean blue and later on with cupcakes. We hiked Ram’s Head trail in very hot temps. While there we sampled some triangle fruit from cacti along the trail. We took breaks to look at the view of the British Virgin Islands as well as numerous shore lines. WE had leisure time to swim and snorkel in Salt Bay and Lameshur Bay.
Personal shout outs:
Hi Dad…love Bones
Hi Chelseas mom…don’t know you very well but you seem well put together. Thanks for making Chelsea pack all that she did.
Hi Mom, thanks for the birthday cards! In addition, thankyou for teaching me to properly apply sunscreen….Love Chelsea
Hey Mom…hope you are staying warm…Love Sarah
PS: we have named our blog entry…”Dock Talk” because last evening we all hiked down to
the dock and watched shooting stars across the evening sky.
Peace out everyone
