Field work is a lot harder than I expected. Even though I am very familiar with the area and comfortable in the water, getting work done at the same time is a new challenge.
The weather here in the tropics, as always, has been sunny and hot, but also windy. The last couple of days has had wind around 20 mph. And while the wind might feel nice in the heat it makes the water choppy and disrupts the clarity. Meaning plans over the last few days have changed a lot, with cancelled boats and waves stopping tidal pool trips.
But there is always something to look at on the island. Even if there is less than 2 square miles of land to explore readily.
