Today was a really amazing day. I learned how to count cells using the dapi software from Dr. Bob Morris, and got to work going through and counting all the slides I have. At around 3, the students drew straws to decide who got to go out on the rescue boat. I didn't get it at first, so I went back to counting my cells. Then Bob came back and told me there was another drawing, and that he had drawn for me and won! So, I got to go out and cruise around in the rescue boat while a bunch of people took photos. The rescue boat is let down to the water by a giant lift on the side of the Thompson, with all the poeple inside. It was awesome to get a water-level perspective of the Thompson, and to be so close to the water with the long rolling ocean waves. It was definitely one of the highlights of the cruise so far.
