Last. Full. Day.
The morning was full of the fun of finishing packing and stacking everything on shipping pallets (in the lashing wind and rain), followed by having to unstack everything because the pallet driver didn't work on the gravel driveway, so all the boxes had to be loaded onto the pallets on the gate of the vans. In the afternoon, we pulled the boat out of the water. In the evening, there was finally some time for R&R, generally involving a walk somewhere. Some folks walked out to the beach, some to the end of the road in the direction they had never been. I finally made it to the ferry landing that is a roughly 4 mile round trip. That was nice. Furthest I've been in a month from the station, unless you count a couple of trips to the grocery store.
Tomorrow, a very early rise, followed by packing our frozen samples and driving them in to NTNU before embarking on the epic 10 hour, 4 airport European tours that we must pretty much all take in order to get back to our points of origin. I hope my car starts when I am reunited with it in the long term parking lot (and that I don't blank out on the pin number for my bank card when I go to pay for the ticket).
