But I am back, more or less. So I thought I would slowly start posting the things I should have been putting here all along.
Let me start easy...how I spent the summer. The first summer of my sabbatical.
Well, I spent a few weeks in Bahía de los Ángeles, working with Ocean Discovery Institute and my great grad student Thaïs. This could be several posts on its own, but the short version is A) the place was even more incredible than usual, with lots of great flora and fauna we dont normally see; B) got to spend more time with my colleague John Wang than I usually do, and that is a real treat; C) met Wendy Piniak from Gattysburg College, who is doing some fascinating work on using acoustic devices to reduce turtle bycatch, and D) had a ridiculously good time!
Browse through the pictures, and I will update soon (no, really!)
