Today was our final day of data collection. We complete this step at a bay across from Prince Kuhio Memorial Park. Courtney and I snorkeled the bay while we held onto a logger and GPS unit. The water was the murkiest I had seen in Hawaii. It was nearly impossible to see further than a 10 feet radius. This blindness made things exciting when I would stumble upon some neat creature, such as a large sea turtle. I let this guy lead my snorkel adventure for a few minutes; the journey was a little slow but completely worthwhile. We spent the rest of the day at the beach with the archaeology group. Our group has grown into something that resembles a close knit family. Although we may not always get along, we still respect each other and you can always count on people being there for you if you fall. I am lucky to surround myself with such great people!
