The seas calmed down a bit or rather the wind subsided and we are in huge glassy swells, all in all a nice day on the Bering Sea. We are transiting so not much is happening. I spent a good deal of time on the bridge watching passing birds and whales. Transit days are good days to catch up on work and to get organized because once the sampling starts, it gets very busy very quickly. The day ended with a beautiful sunset and the continued big swells.
