We are members of the Hopkins Marine Station in Pacific Grove, California. We live by the sea and laugh by the sea – and occasionally cry into the sea when a seagull steals our lunch that we brought all the way from home and had, like, turkey and this tangy aioli thing and grilled onions…

On this blog you’ll find stories about our adventures (researching, teaching, or otherwise) as a part of this wonderful community. We represent a host of world-class labs studying everything from the tiniest bacteria up to the largest animals that have ever walked (or swam) the earth.

Join us as we discover and share more about ourselves and the vibrant marine world that surrounds us all.
