Delayed in New Zealand

Well, our flight never left Christchurch last night. We've been delayed for "at least" 24 hours, which means we get to spend another 24 hours in the beautiful summer weather. That could be fun, except we're anxious to get started on our field work!

What do you do during an unexpected 24-hour delay? Well, mostly we're sitting in our hotel room working from our computers. However, we did venture out for a short drive along the coast. This is a picture of the three of us on Lyttleton Harbor. This is the harbor from which R.F. Scott departed for his Antarctic expeditions (because they had to take ships back then, rather than planes!). We felt it was an appropriate place to visit on our way to the Ice! Featured are: me (on the left), Brendan (Institute for Astronomy, University of Hawaii) and Chris (Atmospheric Sciences, Oregon State University). We are the three remaining scientists that will be completing our research group. The others are already waiting for us in the field!
We propped the camera on a rock, but it was a bit slanted. We corrected for the slant. Aren't we clever?!
