We have been making great time on our way back to San Diego, averaging around 10 knots for the last two days. Our current ETA in San Diego is early Monday, giving us a few extra hours for data collection. We could stop today, except the ocean looks like this:
Pretty beautiful, but no good for wave-breaking measurements. Looking ahead, though, we expect 20 knot winds off the California coast tomorrow morning. So that’s the plan: take a few hours of data tomorrow morning, then pack up our gear and head back to San Diego. If all goes well, that will even leave us a few hours to spend at the beach before returning to Seattle Tuesday night.
