Day 16: Farallon feast

 Food features prominently in our daily life on the island. The research assistants here are all volunteers, their only compensation is food and a roof over their heads, so we try to have good food. And since there are limited entertainment opportunities, much of our downtime is spent either cooking or planning things to cook. That's especially true now since it is still early in the season and fieldwork is relatively light. We typically rotate dinner cooking duties and eat dinner all together. But the baking bug bit the house today so we had a community effort for dinner tonight: delicious homemade spaghetti and a green salad by Russ, freshly baked bread by Greg, and strawberry rhubarb pie by me. Not bad for a field camp.
