Viewing Post for: Antarctic Adventure

Date: Sunday, January 8, 2017
Location: Somewhere near Antarica

Traveling 13.5 knots per hour. Great news. We awoke to calmer seas. The ship still rocking and rolling a bit but most have recovered. One or two left lunch early to lay down though.

Today is a day of presentations on birds and history. Also we are doing our safety briefings for kayaking and going ashore. My favorite presentation was by John, a retired British Antarctic Survey member. In the late 60's he sailed here for a two year stint as base camp manager at a atmospheric station.

Lots of time outside looking for albatross and other sea birds that only a few lucky people will ever see. The photo people are working on the perfect bird in flight pic. The rest of trying to capture the feeling of this grand open space here.

Food is fantastic and fresh. We are along ways from the explorers of 100 years ago.
