I was hoping to have some moments on a nearby beach to enjoy and photograph the sunset, but it was aborted due to some disturbing news from a sister ship full of NASA people. They had just analysed their multiple feeds on weather and atmospheric data, and arrived at the conclusion that our planned north-eastern location would be inundated by clouds and precipitation during the total solar eclipse.

A new path and destination was set, but it was in a location much further away and we needed all the time we could get in order to arrive in time the next day. Thus we hastily pulled the anchor and went on our way for a continuous voyage throughout the night.
