Today was our first whole day on St. Croix! This morning we woke up and had breakfast. We then headed over to the tortoise garden that is at the bed and breakfast we're staying at. We looked at the tortoises for a while and picked a few up. As a group, we went over the courses and what our term is going to look like. When it started to get pretty hot, we decided to head to the beach. We walked through Christiansted and saw lots of chickens and chicks along the way. We also saw three really sweet dogs as well! We spent most of the afternoon at the beach, swimming, and tossing frisbees and a football. We all had a great time in the warm water, which felt great considering most of us are coming from the cold! Today was pretty cloudy but still super warm. We had a nice walk back and saw some massive tarpon at the boardwalk. We made it back to the hotel for everyone to work on their online scuba certifications. We are hoping to get through the classes and dive soon! Everyone is super excited, and it's going to be the majority of the group's first time scuba diving! Tonight we are going to have pizza for dinner, yum!! Tonight we will probably all sleep well because of all the swimming we did earlier!!

Peace out,
