On-board Diary: Day off in Zumaia

Date: July 27, 2008



In spite of having the day off, many of us had pending work. So at a more relaxed pace, at any part of the ship you could find someone doing maintenance work on the scuba gear, checking the Rov's operating status and welding the umbilical, organizing photos, doing the timing for the recordings, identifying some of the species found or finishing up reports.

Others decided to spend the day seeing new places and via the Road to Santiago. They reached Deba, crossing fields and thickly wooded areas.
