Sunset on the bridge... time for bed.
A few days on an ocean research vessel, you kind of get into a groove... whatever watch you're on. Today was a beautiful, cool day. After another long shift, I visited the bridge at sunrise to give a few more waypoints. After breakfast (my dinner of blueberry pancakes) I was very happy to go to bed at ~10 AM. I woke up at 5 PM to grab some yummy grilled mahi mahi for breakfast. Then I checked out what's happening with the day shift. As the sun set, the day watch worked quickly to process a core on deck and get ready for the next sampling effort. I grabed a cup of coffee and did a little work before watch at 9 PM. The moon was rising to light up my night.
Morning coffee... at sunset.
