Day 9 - One thing we realize...

… is that we can’t do anything about the weather. Yes, everyday isn’t all sunshine, smooth sailing and lots of animals. We run into some bad weather on occasion and today was one of those days. We woke up to 25 – 30 knot winds and force 4-5 seas, which only got worse as the morning progressed. The Visual Team, being the troopers that they are, were up on the Flying Bridge at 06:45, braving the winds. But as it got worse and started to rain they just couldn’t do any more and had to go off effort. Even though the weather hampers our visual efforts it doesn’t bother the Acoustic Team at all. They are our 24/7 all-weather team.

We hope the stormy seas are behind us and sun is on the horizon. It looks like the next 3 to 4 days in a row will be good weather.
