Pisces – Packin’ it In

The weather turned rough overnight and didn’t improve in the morning.  Gusty winds made operations difficult and dangerous, and since we only had a few more hours till it was time to head for home we decided to call it a day.

The crew scrambled to get everything ready – the officers preparing the ship’s bridge, the deck department getting the mooring lines out, and the engineers putting another engine on line performing extra checks on the propulsion system, and the science team breaking their gear down.

We saw the usual assortment of marine life as we were pulling in, as well as a handful of monarch butterflies, perhaps blown over the ocean by the strong winds.  And, this being Sunday, that means barbecue day!  We’ve been listening to Erik Quiroz from Texas A&M brag about his baby back ribs, so we decided to make him put his money where his mouth is.  Dave Newman contributed coconut shrimp.  Everyone was pretty impressed.

At the moment it appears as though the Pisces’ will be going back to our fisheries science mission next time we head to sea.  It’s been a pleasure serving the nation in this time of crisis, and we wish the best of luck to all the other ships who continue the search for oil under the sea.
