Journal Entry:
We were supposed to diving to clean the clam farm at Naa this morning. I got up reasonably early, but the dive was canceled due to it being low tide and the good boat driver wasn't available, and the air compressor being broken. We set up to go out at three instead. I spent the morning getting caught up with email and then helping Stacy and Tyler scrub one of the reservoir tanks. I actually did very little and mostly just watched. After lunch I sat on the porch a bit talking with one of the other volunteers about the diving on Chuuk. Down in MERIP I helped figure out what was wrong with the compressor (a large spring was not allowing the filter chamber to properly seal so it was blowing out the o-ring). We ended up deciding not to dive at all today - we'll go clean clams (or maybe weed a sponge farm) tomorrow. In my room worked on the computer a bit then went with Stacy for an evening paddle out to nearby Joy island for a quick swim before racing back for diner. After diner I watched a video (Men in Black) with some of the employees and students and then sat up with Stacy and showed her my photos and had a couple glasses of port.
