The Evening Report

The evening anchorage finds everyone at Stuart Island.  The kids had a great second day, gathering more samples, enhancing their knowledge of sailing by learning about navigation and tacking the boat (despite the lack of wind). The water around us was spattered with porpoises and seals all day long. Tonight looks to be rather calm with fun evening games!

The Adventure Continues

The still of the morning gave way to the quiet waters aboard each vessel.  

The students took the time to sample the waters around the islands to collect zooplankton in order to test their hypothesis … they are looking for evidence whether pH levels might be affecting the zooplankton community.

Morning thoughts

It is a pleasant start to the morning.  The sky reflected in the calm
of the harbor waters and the boats were still.

Last night the wildlife was entertained to a raging round of ‘song wars’ which emanated from the camp fire circle.

The sight of Harbor porpoise and the sounds of eagles were memories of the yesterday.

Stuart Island after breakfast is the anticipated destination for the day.
