Well, as we move further south, the weather has changed dramatically. The swells are 8 feet, the water and air temperature is 15 degrees C and it is raining. The JR is certainly rocking and rolling today; some of the crew is starting to feel seasick. A science meeting will take place at 11:00 am and then we should be arriving at our next site shortly thereafter. The site is close to the margin of the South Pacific Gyre and we will be collecting sediment cores.
Yesterday was Thanksgiving on board and we all ate more than we should have. There was a large variety of deserts to finish off the meal and no one could have just one! I have posted some photos below.
