A collection of pictures that never made it into a post:
What an instrument that has been in the ocean for two years ends up looking like. I’m told those nasty things growing on this Waverider are called goose-neck barnacles.
Early on we had a number of avian stowaways onboard, including this owl-ey looking guy (taken from our fourth day at sea).
A good picture of the daily, sometimes tricky, recovery of our wave buoys (taken by Jim Thomson).
A cool storm front over the ocean.
I have a billion pictures of this sunset, but here’s one of my favorites.
Only three days until we return to San Diego!
