Today was a strangely quiet day at the field station. In part because Morten needed to be picked up from the airport late that evening and in part because everyone needed some down time, we sent the kids into Trondheim for the afternoon for R & R. We do hope Morten appreciated being met at the airport by our entire bevy of babes.
The rest of us (Briva, Morgane, Richard, Marja, and myself), spent the afternoon and evening wandering the now empty halls of the field station, finishing up experiments and generally tidying up some of the chaos generated by the nearly 3 solid weeks of 16+ hour days/7 day weeks of frenzied scientific research. In the evening, the whole lot of them went out to the mesocosm raft to feed the phytoplankton in the mesocosms, add calcite to the calcite bags, and haul zooplankton out of the bay, leaving me entirely alone in the field station (well, alone unless you count the ghost) for about an hour. It was weird (being alone). But then I figured out I could blast music on the stereo and sing along without causing anyone serious injury.
After this, I decided to make a brief photo tour of the empty field station. But I didn't get any photos of the ghost.
