Last night I absolutely crashed before I could write my blog. The crazy part is, it wasn't even one of the most "physically active" days I've had out here. Bryce and I worked on our project and went out and collected data at high tide with Ed for about 2 hours. The winds here are really picking up and the current was pretty strong so we were beat, but we had dinner and the rest of the night to recover so who knows why I was so tired!
As for today, I worked again with Bryce to analyze the data we collected yesterday and I think our project is going in the right direction. Even though we may not be the most focused pair around, we get it done in the end and we have fun too--that's what matters right?
Only two more days left on Heron and I'm trying not to think too much about it and just enjoy the time we have but it's been so great and I'm not ready for it to end. Today, while watching the sunset, having good conversation I was reminded of something I read out of a John Muir book:
"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world."
