The Drake Passage was pretty smooth on the way back. We spent our day mostly relaxing and going to lectures. We learned more about Sea Wanderers, Greenland, Politics in Argentina, and Winter at an Antarctica Station. The staff is so knowledgable. Greenland is now on my list of possible places to visit.
The captain took our ship by Cape Horn this afternoon. There were Petrels flying around but it was very difficult getting photos of them.
Here I am on the deck as we passed it.
Andy, Jerry, and Joni were also out there.
The staff held an auction in the Observation Lounge and served each of us a cocktail. They auctioned off a flag and a map. The money (I think over $600) they collected is going to The Antarctica Heritage Trust.
Although we were assigned certain tables for tonight’s dinner, Fred, Bill, Dawn, Rich, Ann & I managed to sit at the same table for our last dinner.
Morten took a photo of the staff waving “Good bye” to us all.
