Do you have any interesting stories about today….

Yes the island that some people are going to sleep on a island called Cypress Island and it’s shaped like a alligator and its really cool.

Any favorite wildlife sightings, quotes, games to share?

Well we played the hand tap game its where you make a circle around a flat surface and you cross hands with someone on your left and go around in a circle and tap your hands but I didn’t do a good job of explaining it but it’s a fun game. And we did see wild life before we started sailing it was when we were learning about safety and when we had a little break we saw little fish and some jumped in the water and it was a cool experience

Describe the anchorage or moorage where Carlyn is right now:

we are at Cypress Island.

Today’s weather:

Well the first hour and a half it was hot then when we started sailing it got windy and cold.

Describe highlights from today’s science and sailing watches:

We did different things as a group but we had some plankton fishing.

Do you have any questions, concerns, or expectations for tomorrow?

No not really I’m just excited and happy to be here and I have nothing to complain about.
