Woke refreshed and ready to go for the day. Only problem is that there is nothing to do. Weather was bad enough last night that we barely made headway, and thus are still 70 miles from our research area. Based on the computerized navigation system, we are making a steady 4 knots, and should be there in 4 days at this rate. Hope we go a bit faster! One thing that was strange last night was hearing the sounds of water and waves above my head. I have the upper bunk in the cabin, which is right below the starboard side deck, aft of the science lab cabin. The water is pretty much free to break over the side of the ship here, so you can hear the waves above and inboard of where I sleep.
It's hard to sit at my computer and type. The ship is rolling enough that the screen of my laptop keeps flopping open and closed on my hands. Breakfast was French toast, home fries, fresh fruit, bagels, and a whole assortment of cereals and breads. The cook is seasick, so I gave her some of my ginger tea. Seems to be working for her too.
Had dinner - roast pork or baked stuffed flounder, etc. Talked with Dave Ullman about the possibility of going to work tomorrow - possibly, if weather cooperates. Watched 24 and went to bed.
