Professional Biologist.

So I passed my test and I am officially a National Marine Fisheries Groundfish Observer. Tomorrow, I get on a plane with 100 pounds of research tools in the infamous (amongst NMFS staff) blue baskets. I am excited to start working. And nervous. I am hoping to see some bears and get in a bit of fishing if there is any spare time on shore. Maybe even both at the same time. Good thing I have a bear bell and a beautiful singing voice.

We all got our foul weather gear (foulies) and tried them on in the living room.

Do we look ready?

Every day we are amazed that we are in Alaska. We take pictures just walking down the street because we like the backdrop.


Oh yeah and the town where I am headed tomorrow has surfing. I hope that they rent thick wetsuits.
