Ocean Classroom 2019: Day Fifty Seven

Culebra, Puerto Rico

Peter K.

Today we spent the day in Culebra. We woke up Thor morning in between many different islands but the biggest is them was Culebra. We started off with a swim call at 0700. As we moved into chores the only thing on our minds was the reef and the beach just across the cove. After a history class with Matthew we had lunch and then started our way across the cove to the beach. Once at the beach we spent our day playing in the sun and the sand. We got to go snorkeling through the reef and we got to see many different species of fish. Once back at the beach after snorkeling we tossed around a football and looked for shells. We found many things including shells, coral, hermit crabs, and coconuts. We spent around 4 hours at the beach and I loved every second of it. In the end we headed back to the boat, shells in hand, ready to make the 50-60 mile journey to St. Croix. I can’t wait to be on watch tonight from 2000-0000 on our way towards St. Croix. It was great to see land after roughly 10 days at sea.

From,
