What could be better after a hard day's work than an ice cream and a hug from one of my favorite people, Leonard (right)! That's my best friend from Baylor, Candice, standing to the right of me. She and the rest of the students from the Baylor in Jamaica trip were a great help in collecting the underwater data for my undergraduate thesis. They were a terrific dive team and are fondly referred to as "SCUBA slaves". Leonard, the ice cream man
