Crazy wind!

No boat trips today  IMAGE: Shrimp nets

A crazy unexpected wind-storm is blowing out of the North East today, driving terrible waves up over the pier. There is no chance of boat trips, and the ferry was cancelled twice. I spent most of today fixing the camera housing – we have brand new camera equipment, and it requires a lot of careful tweaking to make sure it all fits inside the camera housing correctly. Taking care of the underwater video camera is my number 1 priority – one wrong move and the housing could flood with water, and my research season would be over in an instant. So far so good (knock on wood). ‘Little Frog’ is doing very well – as John (the camera technician) always says: water on the outside, air on the inside.
