Our second day of the crossing from South Georgia to the Falklands had much gentler seas and the winds died almost completely. A thick fog surrounded us for a good part of the day but it lifted in the afternoon to present us with some enigmatic gray skies and the presence of some the most remarkable sea birds in the world. Wandering albatross and giant petrels followed our wake and made for great opportunities for photos from the back deck. A number of presentations from the staff made for a very pleasant and educational day in preparation for our landings in the Falklands Islands during the next days.
