Monday, 5th October 2015 – The day the JR leaves for the Maldives. Before leaving, a compulsory group photo with the JR has to be taken. Rounding a troop of scientists can apparently be quite the challenge.
Old farts and old farts in-training gathered on the pier next to the JR took about 30minutes!
Somehow everyone managed to find their way to the pier and my GoPro snapped away under 30 seconds. We had the sun on our faces – hence we have squinty eyes!
The outcome was an effort well worth it. I am now going to print a photo!
By the way, the JR has now left the refueling port and is on her way crossing the Indian Ocean.
