Bahamas Winterim

Today the Dawson Bahamas trip started our morning with a bracing swim from the beach outside our dorm to a small wreck that has become a substrate for a coral community. 

Then we waded and floated in a mangrove swamp and learned about this critical and threatened habitat and its unique features.  This afternoon we took a boat ride to a sandbar, which is a magical place.  We collected shells and sand dollars and learned about ooid formation deep in the Exuma Sound.
