I left port this morning and we are already out in the Gulf of Mexico. It has been smooth so far. Everyone is getting to know each other and we are beginning to work as a team. Completion of our first station went well. I've gotten emails from several of you but haven't had a chance to reply back yet. It has been a busy day.

I'm thinking about how unreal life is out here. It's like being at the office only everything is done at sea. There is the surrounding beauty of the ocean but there isn't much time to really soak it in because of working out the details and staying busy with what we have to do. I'm sure that will get better as our operation here becomes smoother.

Hope that all of you are doing well.


  1. I always loved the view. Ferocious thunderstorms are my favorite.

  2. How great to see that you posted. Do you get a day off at sea?

  4. I can hear the waves slapping up against the boat from here :)

  5. I always feel "right sized" when I'm on/in the ocean. It's not all about me....out there.

  6. Syd,
    How exciting! It must be peaceful at night on the water. I'm sure you'll have a lot to blog about.
    Please keep us up to date...we look forward to your posts.
