In between sorting photos, I’ve also been trying to get lots of reading done.  I brought a pile of scientific papers down with me; I’ve made some headway, but it seems for every paper I get through, I find a newly published one that needs to go into the pile!    I’ve also been continuing to work on the stranding response plan document.  Our hope is that I spend lots of time on it & we never need to use it.  But, I think it will be very helpful if the need ever does arise.  This is the field guide I’m using, if anyone is curious: Geraci, J.R. and V.J.
