As much as I love Boston, it was nice to get out of city for a bit. Nahant, an island north of Boston, has a gorgeous rocky shoreline, and in the distance you can see the Boston skyline.
In the afternoon I joined the Northeastern team on our weekly Mission 31 science conference call. The conference call was more fun this week with the focus on dive helmets and the schedule. Everyday I get more excited for the mission.
Yesterday was also the annual Riser Lecture at the Marine Science Center. The guest speaker, Dr. Mark Hay, made his hour talk fly by in what seemed like a few minutes. Mark's topic was the current health of coral reefs.
Dinner following the Rise Lecture was fancy and fun. I can't wait to spend more time with Brian Helmuth and his team in Florida.
