Jim decided to escape the distractions and responsibilities of his office at Scripps and took a day off to show me the desert east of San Diego.

He continued his overview of the basics of physical oceanography as we drove to Anza-Borrego State Park where we took a hike to view some Pleistocene marine fossils. The hundreds of clams, scallops, snails, and corals that were easily found in the appropriate rock layers helped keep our discussions focused on the ocean and my responsibilities on this summer's cruise.
