Today we awoke to another great breakfast prepared by our chef Adam and, as always, people were eager to get seconds. We got right to chores, people scrubbing the galley, salon, fish-hold, as well as the various other tasks around the boat. After chores were finished, we were told we could get a bit of phone time to call home and talk to our friends. We were all super excited to hear this. Once everything was set on the boat, we headed into the office to have our marine biology class. It felt so great to spend some time in the air conditioning. We covered and discussed the reading from Oceans of Life, and started our intro to plastics. A heavy topic for the next few days. We hopped back on the small boat and helped Adam shuttle provisions to the boat. Along his way he grabbed us some Crucian food for lunch. After cleaning up we moved to the dock and started preparation for our sunset sail. Today there wasn't a ton of wind. So, the ocean was super calm and on deck wasn't hectic. Another beautiful day and sunset in St. Croix.
