This morning began with the Northern most station, PCB01, right off Panama City.  This was a shallow site at only 25 meters depth.  We arrived on site at 0600.  At one point land could be seen until the fog rolled in.  We were even able to get cell phone connection!  Now, we’re heading back along the transect line collecting data using the SIPPER and stopping at every predetermined station to collect data.  We had visitors along the way.

A pod of dolphins took the opportunity to ride the bow wave of the Weatherbird II.
