Description of location
2 miles off Point Judith
Today started off very slow. Dawn watch sailed us through the Cape Cod Canal where they were greeted by the sunrise. (It was beautiful!) Counting and filtering the marine life that we’ve sampled from our science deployments have been very fun! Navigation has been made difficult due to the lobster pots and weather we’ve encountered. (That’s Boston for ya!) Currently we are sailing with very strong winds and massive swells which are causing the ship to tilt at a very steep angle.
Walking is fun but also is very nauseating bouncing off the walls (I mean this literally) and running up the high side can be very exciting. The tables are gimbaled and have made meals very interesting; we are all fascinated by how they stay upright while everything around it moves. Living on a boat has its pros and I’ll definitely say gimbaled tables are the biggest ones – when I say the tables are amusing I can sit and have a conversation with you on how interesting they are. Overall, other than the great tables, the trip has been very informative and knowledgeable; there has not been a day where we’ve gone to bed not knowing something new or improving on old skills.
