We finished work for the day at about 4.15pm, I went and cleaned the bathroom then got showered ready for tea. Lynn cooked us beef pie with mash and veg this evening. Me, Lou, Stacey and Brad then watched 'Bridget Jones Diary' and crashed for the night. That's the most work I have done in over a month today. I am ...

        ... trenches of between 4000 and 5000 feet in depth. These trenches are the reason for the whale population. We were fortunate to see two male sperm whales, approximately 40' long, swimming together for about 15 minutes before making their dramatic diving descent.
