Ocean Classroom 2019: Day Sixty One

Buck Island, St. Croix

Lila B.

Dear voyage log,

What a day on Buck Island, St. Croix. Never would I have ever thought that I would get the chance to snorkel in the beautiful reefs of Buck Island, one of the prettiest places on Earth. We started our day getting underway back to the mainland of St. Croix to drop off our engineer Dan the Man to get his leg checked out, and then off we went back to Buck Island!! We had a long and wet small boat ride to the beach and then all immediately hopped into the water because it was a hot day with very beautiful water. Kerri and I went out snorkeling during our beach time and had such an amazing time seeing some really cool things. We saw TONS of different types of fish and we even saw a few spiny lobsters!! (They look a lot different from lobsters up north). after our beach time we took the small boats back home, went for a quick swim off the boat, ate lunch, and got underway to St. John right away! Now we are all ready for a beautiful day in St. John! Only a week left :)
