Today was a sad day for those of us who were going home. We pulled into Port Hardy around 0630, finished packing, had breakfast and then were taken to shore by the FRC. I realized that I usually take many photos of wildlife and sunsets but none of the people and where I live during these adventures so I snapped a few more photos before getting off the ship. As well, one of our the other team members, Bruce, took a group photo of most of us before we all dispersed.
Thank you to all those who were more experienced with life on the Tully and showed me the ropes on my last ship-based survey…and to the coast guard crew who safely took us to and around the marine animals we saw on this cruise. It was a great week and I’ll never forget my first Tully cruise!
