We're all feeling a great sense of accomplishment as we now steam home. Some of our instruments, and of course our bird observer Tim 'The Bird Machine' White, that sample while the vessel is underway are still running, but otherwise most of the science party is now working on processing data and samples, and taking apart the equipment for when we return to Woods Hole. We're far enough offshore though that it will take us a total of about 6 days to make it home!
