Day 26 - Pet rock day
Happy (belated) #PetRockDay! Wherever you are, take some time to groom your own special rock. Even a humble piece on manganese crust can be made to look special. #RVInvestigator @EarthByteGroup pic.twitter.com/tofBdUJieQ— Ben Mather (@BenRMather) September 1, 2019
A final flurry of dredges before the science deadline saw 5 dredges in 24 hours.
It all paid off - we got some great basalt samples from two seamounts in the Lord Howe hotspot chain, and some beautifully preserved coral.
BBQ on the deck
This evening we gave chef a break and cooked a BBQ on deck 5.
Dredgebusters premiere + trivia
The feature premiere of Dredgebusters was featured in the lounge. Stay tuned on social media for the full length feature (pending review by the RV Investigator social media officers).
Later we split into teams for trivia hosted by the amazing quiz meister, Jamie Menzies.
