This morning was beautiful! It was mostly sunny with a fresh breeze in our faces as we approached the Falkland Islands. The birds were particularly busy, perhaps even happy. By the end of breakfast, there was already an impressive bird list: wandering albatross, grey-headed albatross, black-browed albatross, giant petrel, Kerguelen
While it could have been a good day to laze about, there was much to be done. We listened to presentations subjects from the Falkland Islands conflict, a joint lecture of differing perspectives, to a presentation called Bird Identification Bingo, by the Grosvenor Teacher Fellows. And let’s not forget about the ocean of images that we took… Today was the deadline for submitting images for the Guest Slideshow. The wise among us might have also started a bit of packing, as tomorrow is a full day too.
After dinner, we previewed of the Voyage Video Chronicle—starring all of us. And last but not least, we heard a presentation about the underbelly of the ship and all the places we wouldn’t normally go and things we wouldn’t normally know.
It was dark when we arrived at the Falkland Islands. At anchor, we awaited our last full day aboard ship and the adventures of tomorrow!
