Bermuda Field Course 2011 :: Daily Report

Day 10 | Saturday, March 19, 2011

Free day. A much anticipated day of getting off the campus of BIOS and exploring the island. There were a few groups that went out to see different parts of the culture and biology of Bermuda:

One group decided to attempt to see as much of the island as possible. Their day consisted of seeing the sights in downtown Hamilton (the capitol of lovely Bermuda), relaxing at Horseshoe Bay on one of Bermuda's famous pink sand beaches, shopping, and seeing the ships at the Royal Naval Dockyard…and ending with dinner back in downtown Hamilton.

A second group of both UNCW and Southampton students decided to go a different option and see a unique part of the biology of Bermuda...whales. Their day consisted of getting up rather early to go whale watching. Their early morning was rewarded with the sight of many whales breaching and the opportunity to see such amazing animals in the wild. After, they toured downtown Hamilton and grabbed some dinner.

A third group consisting of UNCW and Southampton students decided to try yet another option and explored the caves of Bermuda. They went to both Fantasy and Crystal Caves and got to see beautiful underground lakes and amazing rock formations. A nice dinner off campus concluded their day.

All groups swapped stories of the day while packing back at BIOS that evening, which just proves, once again, that Bermuda is a unique and beautiful place. Our last full day is done and we have all made wonderful memories and friendships. Presentations and travel tomorrow will end what has been the experience of a lifetime.
