Better Late than Never: More information on our second port stop
It was a pleasant Saturday morning when we sailed past the Hole in the Rock and into the Bay of Islands, just north of Auckland. The scenery all around us was stunning and we encountered lots of boat traffic, consisting mainly of sailboats. We then anchored just off of Russell, a cute little town tucked away between the rolling hills of the Northland.

Shark Cams & SEA trivia
Today we had a guest speaker, Amy Kukulya, a leading engineer behind shark cam at WHOI. She talked to us about her career pathways and aspirations in engineering and other fields such as environmental policy. She described many difficulties she has had to face in the field, like being the only female in a white male environment. Her talk was very inspirational and eye-opening for all of us.

Our little world shrunk to 34 people when we boarded this ship in Honolulu, but our world began to grow when we started trawling for zooplankton below us and realized we were far from alone. Our little world just grew again today.
