Homeward Bound



R/V Sally Ride’s lines were cast off and we got underway at 10am

This morning the R/V Sally Ride left San Francisco after a short port call that included nearly 800 people touring the ship. Next stop is our home port of San Diego!

In the few hours since leaving the bay, we’ve spotted dozens of whales (humpbacks and blues) and dolphins (Risso’s and right whale).

San Francisco was absolutely lovely, especially being docked so close to the Bay Bridge with its night-time light display. But it’s also lovely now, with nothing on the horizon and just a quiet grey ocean all around us.
