The Research Vessel Thomas G. Thompson was back on the Shoreline Sea Tuesday and with company.

Jan Hanson says "The smaller vessel is the Charles W. Cain, a law enforcement vessel. After circling the Cain headed toward Edmonds and the Coast Guard vessel, Osprey came into view. Such an exciting trio."

The Thompson is a UNOLS whole ocean capable vessel and normally operates between Seattle, the South Pacific and all the way up to the Arctic Ocean.

She just returned from a student research cruise to Knight Inlet, B.C. and will soon head south to New Zealand.

The Osprey is a Coast Guard boat, assigned to patrol Puget Sound.
