Pete again:
It's 12:40 AM. We just finished our last station of the day. Pictured is us geting the LOPC ready. We also put the Tucker in. During which a minke whale came to play. Literally. Phoebe and I got distracted putting the net in as a minke whale surfaced not 5 feet off the starboard stern. It was glowing as it agitated the bioluminescence. Alex, the captain, quickly got us back on task with a quick shout. It's important to stay focused when putting things over the stern when you're miles from shore. Way too easy to get pulled in. The whale hung around while we were towing the Tucker and as we put it away. Wicked cool. Quite a day. Up at 6 for the next station. Night.
