Past the 24 hr Departure Mark!

Our bags are packed, each bit of gear snuggled compactly in each case. Of course, with Halloween the last day of our trip, I had to include a few “treats” for the trip.

I’m looking forward to this annual return to Roatan and Anthony’s Key to connect with colleagues at the Roatan Institute for Marine Sciences (RIMS) but especially to see the dolphins. To observe first-hand how much the calves have developed and grown, to see how any new calves of the year are doing, and, of course, to see what marks Ronnie is again covered with from his interactions.

My post tomorrow is likely to be later in the day, after arrival to Roatan and settling in as well as making sure the MVA2 and other gear arrived well. Here’s to a week of lots of data collection and some lively discussions!

Cheers … soon from Roatan!
