We woke up at the crack of dawn…actually before dawn, to catch the zodiac boats this morning. Anyone still half asleep sure woke up during the ride to Nualolo. Although it was pretty rocky and my boat got soaked from the surf, it was so much fun! Once there, Dr. Burney took us around and gave us a tour of the archaeology and vegetation of the area. It is amazing to think that people lived on such a small piece of beach subject to the Pacific storms. Dr. Lipo also had us work on some GPR (aka Ground Penetration Radar) to see if there were any skeletons or artifacts of interest under the soil.
The rest of the day, well until 5 pm, we had the day off to enjoy the surroundings and beach. Then the zodiac again!
Lots of work still to do. Goodnight!
