I've said it before, but I am going to say it again..time is a very strange thing here. It seems to pass by at a rapid pace or not at all. We are getting into the home stretch of the final week here. Today we figured out our final project groups and topics. I will be working with Chase and we are going to monitor Epaulette shark abundance at two different times of day. We are going to scout out areas tomorrow to determine which location of the beach that we have research permits to that we will conduct our experiment at. Epaulette sharks are really interesting creatures, worth a quick read on google. They use their fins to "walk" in low tides. Also they are just cute.
We have the next four days to knock out the research and Saturday we are presenting our findings. Tomorrow is a "cruisey" day as Edd says...which means we have three-ish hours of free time after lunch to do whatever the heck we want. There is a small group of people that are going with the resort to do a scuba dive on the reef tomorrow which is why we have a larger block of free time. I'm sure we will find something to do. The winds are supposed to be a bit high here tomorrow..not sure how that will affect things.
We also visited the research station gift shop this afternoon where I was able to pick up an incredibly soft hoodie which I will wear until the end of time. Quality purchase if you ask me.
I didn't go on the evening snorkel tonight, but I did get some great Polaroids of the sunset which will be fun to show off once I get back.
That's all for today!
A few basic things you should know about me: 1. I really like my Chacos, doggos, and fish friends. (not to eat them of course).
