Hello, I have only just been able to get on the internet. I am on board the M/V Explorer in San Diego. We have had lots of faculty meetings in preparation of leaving port tomorrow night. We sail down to Ensenada, Mexico to pick up over 650 students. With faculty and staff plus crew, we will have about 1000 souls on board. This 590 foot long ship will get small fairly quickly. I have been working out every morning and long walks along the harbor when I can. All of my classes are full and I am very excited about sharing with these students the wonders of biology. I had a fabulous Bon Voyage party with about 30 family and friends. Thank you all for coming. Kent and I had a fun few days in San Diego, then he made the long drive home to the canyon where he is holding down the fort. More soon as the adventure begins. Photos soon.
