A Gulf of Alaska Sunrise 6 AM Monday the 17th.... Like no sight I have ever experienced! Simply amazing!
A great way to start a day! Today we are finishing up with the Kodiak line and then heading over to the Gulf of Alaska line(GAK). Transit times between lines will be about 10 hours, but that is all dependent on weather.
What is one to do during this down time? Plenty - talking with the boat's captain, or skipper, sharing stories about the sea..... sharing stories about family and life back in the North-east.... Understanding how a 21 day research trip doesn't just happen - there are months of planning and coordination and good amount of money to fund it all!
Spending time on a boat in the"Middle of Somewhere" is one of the greatest experiences I have had the opportunity to experience.
