NEU/BIO 675: Biodiversity, Brains, and Behavior
January 17, 2020
Today was our last day at CoCo View. We did our morning dive at Calvin’s Crack and our drop off at CoCo Wall. We were able to go through the crack and caves and also saw a massive bearded toadfish. It was such a bittersweet day of diving and celebration.
After diving all morning we had lunch and needed to pack our bags. I was able to get all of my clothes, swimsuits, and dive equipment washed and dried early in the day which left me the afternoon to relax and enjoy my last day. Dinner was the best we’ve had so far. We were given steak and lobster in addition to scalloped potatoes, green beans, homemade rolls, and key lime pie for dessert.
There was then a party thrown for all of the guests. Live music was the focus in addition to free rum punch. Everyone was enjoying themselves and letting loose after a long week of diving. The night was so much fun and we really had fun with our dive team and the people we had been seeing all week. The clubhouse has T-shirt’s from every group that visits pinned to the walls. Our J-Term Trip shirt was no exception. We all signed it and pinned it right on for everyone to see. I even was invited to sign the shirt of Dive Team Bean, which is the group I was given membership into. It was such an amazing experience and I cannot wait to go back.
