The Island Life

Daniel Karparis, University of Maine Orono

Study Abroad at Sea

Ahoy and land ho from Grenada! My name is Dan Karparis and I am currently a junior at the University of Maine in Orono, where it is most certainly not 29°C and sunny, sorry not sorry. I am currently writing this blog for December 3rd in the library of the SSV Corwith Cramer on December 4th at around 2100 (only eight hours after leaving the beautiful and friendly island of Grenada).

Much has happened for the Corwith Cramer and her crew over the weekend.  We shifted anchorages to Rendezvous Bay, held final Oceanography Presentations and celebrated everyone’s creativity with a Cramer Art gallery.  That was Saturday!

Goodbye Jamaica!!

Allyssa Stevenson, A Watch, American University

At this moment in time, I am certain of three things:

1) There is no better place to watch the sunset than on the ocean, - with friends - on top of the Elephant Table.
2) Community is everything.
3) Ginger beer is (and always has been) better than Ting.

Hello from the beautiful city of Port Antonio, Jamaica!  This is our second day docked in Errol Flynn marina.  Yesterday, classmates spent the day exploring markets and restaurants and sampling Jamaica’s famous jerk chicken.  Today was filled with exciting activities and exploring even more new places.

C283 Caribbean Reef Expedition - Fond Farewells

Douglas Nemeth, Captain

width="600"

Coming in, secure in the harbor as we are now, generates a comfortable feeling for mariners. We are no longer subjected to the whims of the ocean, the motion of the vessel and other associated voyaging challenges.

Too Much to Say

Ale Tejeda, Colorado College

width="600"

I began to write this multiple ways. This beginning paragraph I write the dawn of the 22nd, having watched the orange moon set and the sun slowly become lighter, because I needed to take pause last night. I have so many tangents running in my mind, so many things I want to say about today, yesterday, and every day since I showed up late one night in Woods Hole that I can’t keep them straight and my tired eyes are making matters more blurry.

A heartfelt thank you to Cramer, her crew, and old man Neptune for a successful and safe voyage thus far. A sincere thank you to all hands, especially the students, for their tireless efforts in the water during the many snorkel surveys and their meticulous efforts afterwards ensuring the quality of our datasets!

Avoid the Fire Coral!

Sharil Deleon, University of Rhode Island

Wakeups for Echo at 7 am, I think, but my alarm clock always knows when to wake me up, aka A watch. Eyes are open and at this point, I am surrounded in my cozy bunk, wondering what’s outside my curtains
