January 17: Back in Flandres Bay

Last night we got back into Flandres Bay, much to my relief: No more ocean swells that roll the ship. For a while it looked like we would be able to fly, but then the ceiling kept coming down and that was it. So we started on marine work again. The ship goes along transects, and in regular intervals we measure physical properties of the ocean and look at life on the sea floor with a camera.

The bad weather actually makes for really nice scenery with low clouds hanging on the mountains, as in today's photo. We will move to the next fjord north tomorrow and keep hoping for opportunities to fly.
