Today was an eventful day, for life
on a ship. Today was the first day that any shipboard videoconferencing
happened. We did a trial run connecting to High Tech High, and it went
off without a hitch (though there was no video camera on that end). An
enormous (1200 lbs) dredge came up, and everything seems golden. We're
heading into port tomorrow, and we'll be doing the real video conference
We all look forward to port, and it
will be a relief. So close to the end of the cruise, we are realizing
that we had to do homework out here, and there is a push to finish all
of that stuff. Then again, we could just do it on the plane ... Hah.
Cleanup is going on, and we're going to have some visitors on the ship
in a few days so everything is being shoved into the closets and boxes.
