Journal Entry:
Started off the day with another working dive - this time to swap out the oysters bags we cleaned two days ago. By swapping them out the baby oysters can be moved to clean bags and the current bags thoroughly cleaned. Also it gives the oysters that were in the raceways at the lab a chance to be out in the sea. After lunch I spent a while on the internet (trying to find some software so I can get my photos up on the net), and then a couple hours with Sue trying to plan what to do with our remaining time on Pohnpei. After diner we walked a half hour to the CATS team base. The CATS team is a US military based volunteer organization (I think), and they show movies for the locals every Wednesday. We watched "Men in Black" followed by the beginning of "Top Gun". The movies were nice (shown outdoors), but the best part was the walk back. The jungle was so dark and the stars so bright - primal and, well, just right. Stacy, Su, and I tried to get some more trip planning done, but we were all so tired that we just got through the weekend done.
