I had three flights, each with a long layover, so it took almost a day to get here. In the Los Angeles airport I met two other teachers who received Earthwatch Teach Earth Fellowships like me: Justine Hochstaedter and Dean Lorenzo, both from the San Francisco Bay Area.
I got here in time for dinner. At the Goldring-Gund Marine Biology Field Station, we work all night. So there wasn’t time to post a blog, sleep, even shave! I spent last night patrolling the beaches. There is a lot to tell about that; and no time to tell it now. But when I first arrived everyone was looking into a bucket of just-hatched Olive Ridley sea turtles.
Later on I got to carry them down to the beach and let them go.
So, enjoy these pictures until I have time to post more.
