We are finished at site 12 and in route to New Zealand. Scheduled to arrive there on the 27th. Very high seas last night and today. It was reported that at one time a wave over 50 feet hit the front of the ship. Waves still high this morning and all outside activity has stopped. We will be working on samples and data processing for the next couple of days and then begins preparation (packing of all supplies and samples) for our return.
