Haiti is in Sight!

Around 6am Saturday morning Haiti came into view. It is estimated 10 hours before we can start taking care of delivering the containment for Haiti and meeting with the other geologists. The science will most likely begin Sunday when we can begin surveying. The captain isn’t comfortable with us beginning our surveying at night since we really don’t have a good sense of what obstacles we could encounter (i.e., pinnacle reefs, marine terraces, ect) and with all the equipment that is attached at the sides and the stern, it could be an expensive disaster. Beginning on Friday, it really felt like we were in the tropics. It is warm with a perpetual sea breeze. We all went out on the deck after dinner to watch the sunset on Friday night.
