Day off. Today is a day for forgetting all about sailing, the trade winds, the robot and diving and using this time to explore the island or kick back and relax.

The only ones who worked were the ROV technicians because the arrived and they had to spend their time installing it.

Since the ship was free of its crew, we invited Olaya Garcia Pérez to visit us. She is a vulcanologist who works at the Spanish National Geographic Institute Canarian Geophysics Center. We shared most of the information we were gathering with her, and we viewed some images. We particularly saw the images of underwater geological structures found during the different campaigns we made with the ROV.
