Steve Cole makes final adjustments to the transportation to the barge at its new location (photo: Moti Stein).

And we're back! After suspending operations in order to fix the barge, we are set to resume drilling tomorrow (Wednesday). The new site is in very shallow water, which will of course, make things easier. We are expecting a slightly different lithology here as we are very close to the western shore. Perhaps a little more salt in the beginning. Perhaps lower rates of sedimentation. Looking forward to a successful second campaign!
