Today is pretty much our last day on the island, we are leaving tomorrow morning. Today I got to see the last sunset I'll probably ever see on Heron Island. It has gone by a lot faster than I thought it would, I have to admit i'm pretty sad now.
We all presented our research today, I did a lot better talking than I thought I would do, but we actually went overtime a little bit, I didn't expect our presentation to be that long. Laura and I did a really good job in my opinion. Teal, Logan, and Rachel won the best presentation award, and they deserved it. Their research was really in depth, and very knowledgeable too.
We also got individual awards today, I got "The Linnaeus Award for Identification", because I would misidentify a lot of things, such as a rock for something living, or a sea cucumber as coral, or a stingrays tail for a piece of plastic, the list goes on.
I'm proud of this award.
I also finished reading the book I brought: "All the Light We Cannot See", It's probably my favorite book of all time now.
I got some awesome footage from the last snorkels today, but I left them on the GoPros, hopefully they are still on there by the time I wake up tomorrow morning.
I'm in a slightly somber mood about leaving right now, that's why the post sounds a bit dull.
In the meantime, here's a picture I took with my phone today.
