March 11th, 2012 More Work and Some Beautiful Pictures

We spent the last 2 days doing REMUS runs and collecting data with cameras, sidescan (makes pictures out of sound waves), and other sensors that you can use to compare to satellite pictures taken from outer space.  When the vehicles are in the water we sit on a boat while the REMUS's run around and make sure that they don't get stuck in a cave or have any problems.  It gets pretty warm so we will jump in the water to cool off.  Some of the other groups ran transects with another boat looking at currents, while another group went diving to pull more instruments out of the water.

We got to go diving and snorkeling at the end of each day to cool off and relax for a couple of minutes.  We have had a couple of small rain storms that blow through quickly, but for the most part it has been quite warm and windy with the tradewinds.

The 2 main places that we have been having dinner are the bar/restaurant next door that was built for the crew of the Survivor series and a restaraunt down the road that was named after German anthropologist who was sent to document the South Pacific islands in the early 1900's.

Enjoy the pictures.
