Updates from Day 23 on the R/V Alucia: Top 10 favorite moments of the cruise

Hey everyone,

As our cruise slowly draws to a close, I thought I would share my top 10 favorite moments with you. There were many more moments and feelings, but this list should give you a good idea!

  1. Learning from and working with brilliant, enthusiastic, and hardworking scientists.
  2. Standing off the side of the Northwind at sunset and speeding back to the Alucia.
  3. Salsa dancing lessons from Fredy, Lake, Mayelin, and Rolando.
  4. Dancing and singing with Amy in the lab during filtering.
  5. The ~35 hours that I spent underwater during this trip (including the priceless moments that I had with a shark and several grouper).
  6. Snorkeling through Acropora palmata fields.
  7. Baking chocolate chip cookies with Mitch in the Alucia kitchen.
  8. Watching birds from the bow of the ship with Tyler.
  9. Standing on the sun deck (top deck) and watching the sunrises and sunsets.
  10. Dancing in the moonlight and under the stars with new friends.

Thanks for reading!
