Spring Break: Continental Shelf – Day 16 – Heading for Home

Sunrise on the last day of sampling.
Well, all good things must come to an end and Spring Break: Continental Shelf is no exception.  The last sampling station was towed earier this afternoon off of Delaware Bay, and now the Bigelow is steaming back to Newport, where I’m told we’ll be docking sometime before lunch tomorrow.  I’ll be taking a break hanging out in Newport with some friends for a few days after, so if you’re in the Rhode Island area let me know.  
Thanks to everyone who’s been reading so far, and do stick around.  There is plenty more red hot spiny dogfish action (not to mention shark-related nerdiness) on the way.  Now that I’ve collected all this data, it’s time to see where it all goes.
