As you can tell by the title every bit of clothing I packed with me smells like the sea. And it isn't the lovely sea scented candle smell you can buy either. This is real field work stuff dudes.
The winds were quite high today as predicted. Chase and I had a riot of a time trying to collect data in the ocean today. By that I mean it wasn't a total riot, but it certainly was interesting. We haven't looked at the footage from today yet, but I think I got footage of a cowhead stingray up close and personal. Meaning...I didn't even see the dude until he swam up and away in front of me.
The rain hit us again today, this time more powerful than before. I think Heron Island got its fair share of rain for the year today alone. It is really fun listening to the raindrops pound on the tin roofs of the buildings here.
I have saved the best news for last....Pat made MASHED POTATOES! I am a happy camper.
Tomorrow Chase and I have to analyze all of the video footage from yesterday and today and get the presentation and report done. It should be a pretty busy day for us, which is good.
We have our last outer reef trip scheduled for Saturday...the weather is supposed to be nice so hopefully all goes well so we can fit another snorkel in.
A few basic things you should know about me: 1. I really like my Chacos, doggos, and fish friends. (not to eat them of course).
