Hurry up and wait...

Valentines Day update.

We're aboard and the boat is gassed up, but we're not going anywhere until Friday night (we were originally supposed to sail today). A piece of critical equipment is sitting in Argentinian customs. It's the sediment trap that we plan to deploy in Marguerite Bay. It will collect particles settling through the water column in the coming months and is really important for helping us to understand what kind of food reaches the seafloor. While we play the waiting game, we are setting up gear and tying stuff to the floors and walls of the boat so it will not shift around as we cross the Drake Passage.

It's not all work, though, in the evenings we've explored Punta Arenas and tried out a couple of great restaurants.
