Our second day at sea from South Georgia turned out to be considerable brighter and calmer than the previous. Perhaps because of that, many more of us were around to witness the incredible variety of seabirds for which these waters are known. Presentations occupied most of our day, along with planning for the Falkland Islands and then back home. A lot of us used the time to reflect on all we’ve seen and experienced the last two weeks. In this day and age, spending a few days getting to one place is not very common. But after experiencing South Georgia, the jewel of the Southern Ocean, and the surprisingly beautiful and plentiful Falkland Islands, we all agreed it was worth the time and effort to get there!
