If you were worried that the Easter Bunny was not intrepid enough to visit us out here on the Southern Ocean, never fear because Easter and the bunny landed on the NBP in technicolor glory. On Easter morning the crew and science staff woke up for breakfast to a galley fully decorated with eggs, balloons and streamers.
When we got to our labs, we found little treats scattered all over the boat. Later in the day, a rather bearded Easter Bunny made the rounds with more treats, and at the end of the day, everyone played Bingo in the galley for more prizes!
All in all, it was a great way to break up the routine. (Oh and we finally had our first CTD station, and deployed a SOCCOM float). Many thanks to the NBP17-04 morale Mom and Dad – Amy Belcher and Julian Race (pictured above).
