Our time here went by so fast! We accomplished what we could to deploy buoys in spite of shifting sea ice, open leads, and only a few whaling trails completed (access to fast ice). I wanted to be fully present in this place, be part of the landscape, absorb as much as I could. And, I did; alongside a fantastic team of scientists who have become friends. Nothing like spending spring break at the beach! ;-)
