    Even though I grew up in Steubenville and visited Franciscan frequently, I don’t have any vivid memories of Father Michael Scanlan. But he was always there, usually as one of the many priests at the altar during mass at Christ the King or in the Field House for Household Life.

    On my final full day in the Florida Keys, the class spent the day in Key West. Our day began with a trip to the Hemingway House Museum. Afterword we were free to explore on our own until the sunset festival later that evening.

    The day had finally come for us to return to home. After we checked our diving gear back in, the class loaded up the vans and went to the airport. I took a few final photos of the sea campgrounds to chronicle my stay here and never forget my time in Florida.

    The following day we were blessed with gorgeous weather and once again boated out to Looe Key where the crisp blue waters awaited our return. After returning from Looe and eating lunch, we got to witness the transplanting of a captured nurse shark to the holding pond at camp. Up until this point, I had never seen a shark of any kind this close but seeing its gills move and tail flail as it was moved to the point was a sight of slight fear and amazement.
