GAHHH!! The wifi here continues to be very difficult to find and even harder to connect to, but we’ll keep trying!!
Since we last posted, we had a nice visit at the Lethbridge Winery, a relaxing free day, and traveled to Queenscliff where we began our marine biology studies.
Our first couple days consisted of a historic tour of Queenscliff, a day of Marine Biology lectures, and a tour of the Marine and Freshwater Discovery Centre. We also spent an exciting morning investigating tide pools at Barwon Heads Marine Sanctuary, where we saw many starfish and mussels, and even spotted a Maori octopus (which is really rare!). Yesterday we split into groups and traded off canoeing on Swan Bay, and snorkeling over the Harry’s Reef. It was a tiring day outdoors, but a lot of fun! Today we had a cruise around Port Phillip Bay and got to explore some of the marine life there, as well as finishing off the day with a couple more lectures on research methods and techniques.
Photos will be coming soon from both Melbourne and Queenscliff! 🙂
