Everyone has officially started their research projects today. We have a group studying sea cucumbers (which is really cool), and a few groups doing sediment cores, including my group.
My phone fell out of my pocket on the jetty last night looking at the stars. Hailey dove for it during this morning's snorkel, which was greatly appreciated. Its completely fried and my pictures are forever gone but at least I got the case back, right?
There was a green sea turtle hatching today. I only caught the last of it, I ran to get Hailey and Katie, since I could see them further down the beach. We watched each of the turtles struggle over the rocks to the sea, only to be picked off by birds once they made it.
My research group gathered the last of our sediment cores today, so now we get to look forward to examining everything under a microscope.
