I woke up this morning at 6:00, stepped outside and watched two peale’s dolphins cruise by. This has been followed by a day of sealife with albatross, petrels and terns wheeling around the ship … the bad news is we have not gotten far towards our final destination.
The weather system we were trying to avoid yesterday ended up turning rather nasty and we had to hold off today just outside of the beagle channel. We didn’t actually get underway until 5:00 in the afternoon which puts us a long way behind schedule. Still the sea is heaving outside, our bow is pointed towards Antarctica and we are on our way.
