Today we awoke to breaching whales, a sure sign that this would be a special day. We would be visiting Red Rock Ridge with its stunning iceberg graveyard, Petermann Island, where Charcot overwintered aboard the Pourquoi Pas?, and finally making our way through the Lemaire Channel winding down the day with steeping slopes of mountains and ice. But the true story of the day was the wildlife that was found in abundance, no matter where we went. From humpback whales to leopard seals, and of course penguins. Today we were surrounded by the bounty of marine life along this stretch of the Antarctic Peninsula.
