Last night we all discovered that we didn’t have an alarm clock. That would seem to be a problem. Not in
Common Habitat: Underwater, mud rooms, creeks, and tops of landfills.
Behavior: erratic, elusive, and can be found kissing jellyfish
After breakfast it was off to a lecture about fish identification. We then got to test our skills as we went out to the water with our gear and some sun screen. The view in Mandy's eel garden was amazing. After lunch, a large group of us kayaked around the lagoon of the island and visited with the dolphins a little. Nothing like marooning yourself in turtle grass, right Amber? Then at about 2 pm we took off for our second dive. More beautiful than the first, we all enjoyed the fish schools in Fish Den.
Here is the group in action

The night will end with two lectures from RIMS staff, mainly Jennifer, about the dolphins.
