THE AFTERNOON BEGAN WITH A LIFE BOAT DRILL, THEN A PANGA RIDE TO BACHAS BEACH OR SANTA CRUZ ISLAND. THIS IS A MAJOR GREEN SEA TURTLE NESTING AREA. WHITE POSTS DESIGNATED NEST LOCATIONS AS FAR AS THE EYE COULD SEE. BLACK LAVE ROCKS WERE COVERED WIITH LARGE RED CRABS. BLACK MARINE IGUANA WRE EASY TO TRACK. THEY LEAVE LONG DRAG MARKS WITH TRHEIR TAILS ON THE SAND. PANGA RIDE MORNING NEAR BARTHOMEW ISLAND THEN A GLASS BOTTOM BOAT FOR THOSE NOT SNORKELING.
