Lots of stuff to do: charging equipment batteries (only for the GPS there are 4 different batteries to charge), lanterns batteries, check equipment and tools lists, packing the van, buying food, programming equipment, renting the boat and skipper.
OK, we're ready.
We went 1 day ahead to put everything in place to start deploying the instruments at 4:30 in the morning.

Below are some photos of the stations.

But, unfortunately, there were only a few small overwash events.

Not good enough. We tried during 2 days, and then the waves just dropped. The problem was that we didn't had enough tide level. Maybe next time...
|Data were not good but we kept a friendly spirit.|
|Happy to be doing fieldwork.|
|The cold and wind was not so funny.|
Cleaning everything at the end was also a major task.
