Living on Island Time
The first couple of days were spent waiting on this and on that and it truly felt like a year had gone by. The first day was spent waking up early and driving to KCI airport where after about an hour or so of waiting we finally got on the plane that took us to Florida. I sat in the very back of the plane with Zach and McCabe and I learned a valuable lesson from…Continue

I woke up early and went to meet everyone at the library. Once we got our passports and tickets we all headed to the airport. We took a flight to Ft. Lauderdale. Once there we all we out to eat and I had a Mahi-Mahi sandwich and tried some oyster, steamed clam, and calamari. I think out of those 3 I will only have the calamari again. Then we got our rooms and got the information for the plane trip to Andros. We had the rest of the night to ourselves and I went swimming and hung out in…Continue

I have known that I wanted to this program for a long time now. My brother did it back in 2003. I saw how much fun he was having learning the fish and then going out on the sail boats and seeing them in person. I saw what he brought back from the trip and it all sounded like so much fun i just had to try and go. So here I am! I took the class and went on the trip.
I couldn't sleep, I had to be up at 4:30 in the morning so we could…

Everything about the Bahamas was pretty much perfect. The weather, the people, the lifestyle, the water, the air, the night sky, and the people. Did I say people twice? Heck yes I did because the people truly were some of the coolest people ever.
They were some of the most down to earth and friendly people I have ever met. There was even a statue of a pair of hands shaking to really reinforce the fact that they were very friendly people.
The first day that we spent on…Continue

Colt's recent update on his life has inspired me to also update everyone on my shenanigans. I am not living in the beautiful wilderness of Alaska, but I am living in the concrete jungle of Washington D.C.
So, since I last checked in, I finished my dissertation research at the University of Rhode Island and am in the process of publishing my results. If all goes as planned, I will be Dr. Nicole Rohr in May with a Ph.D. in Biology! Here is my first chapter in case you are…Continue
Wow so its been awhile since I have updated this blog... I don't know a lot of the people on here anymore... let me quick introduce myself to some of the people who might not know me...

I recently graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelors degree in Marine Biology. I have been through many internships and jobs through my college career which you can read about on my…Continue
I woke up an hour earlier than I had intended to, just as I always do on days like this. My head scrambled together a thousand images of a burning sun over a dancing blue sea, and my stomach ached for the adventure. I showered and dressed for the chilly Midwestern April, wishing I were already in the warm tropics of Andros. I tossed my bag in the car, kissed my family goodbye, and my mom and I headed off to meet the group. There’s…Continue

When you get stuck on a boat for a week by choice you go outside of your normal circle of usual foods. It seemed for almost every meal we had peanut butter on something. This…Continue

We're Here, We're Finally here in the Bahamas, the cool salty air makes great sleeping conditions, which is good because I was exhausted after being stuck in the Ft. Lauderdale Airport for what felt like forever yesterday. Though my sandals appear to have been snatched away in the night by some local, oh well, not much I could do now if I wanted to. We woke up bright and early to get a head start on the other boat, Sirena.…Continue

April 2nd 2011
On the flight into Andros we got to see the deep ocean blue turn to a clear bluish and greenish mix. When we saw this change I noticed that there almost no boats in sight. Karen slept most of the flight and actually ended up drooling on my hoodie….. The rest of the flight was just a little bit cold with out my hoodie. After we landed and got into fresh…Continue

I rolled out of bed at four thirty in the morning, still upset that I will be leaving for a whole week; we left st.joe for the air port. When we got there we checked in and went to our gate. After we boarded the airplane I fell asleep, I woke back up while we were flying over…Continue
