When I first retired I considered doing a 3 month volunteer (Minimum stay) worker/researcher there for the NC doing research on corals as PA is supposed to have the most pristine reefs and greatest diversity of corals on the planet.

The killer factor was the weather as PA was supposed to be a "wet atoll", 200" of rain a year. There was, as I understood it, no "dry season" at all. 3 months in a tent...in 3/4 inch of rain a day...started to sound less than exotic.

And then my wife said she would miss me.

What was the weather and what were the accomodations?
