The last few days and nights the weather was not so great. Wind and waves (and seasickness) came and went, but the cloudy skies and rain have stayed, with the sun only being visible occasionally.
There are now often local rain showers in the “science garden”….
…and the men out on the drill-deck need their bright-colored rain gear…
Luckily, we have plenty of chocolate, coffee and tea to keep us going at night.
We’ve now left the Landsort deep and have moved to the south – we’re drilling two sites near the southern tip of Sweden. These are our sixth and seventh site, located in the Hano Bay and Bornholm area, respectively. The samples are steadily coming on deck again. Despite the not-so-great weather, we’re still going strong!
