Steaming north on our final leg home, the horizon brought forth a rewarding and welcoming sight of land, sheltered by its sheer cliffs and snow-capped peaks.
As we picked up our pilot for our transit through the Beagle Channel to Ushuaia we were able to sit back and relax with the aroma of coffee in the air and cameras in our hands. All marveling at the stark contrast to the black and white landscape of Antarctica, with the first trees we have seen since we left the mainland all those weeks ago. Keeping our eyes peeled we spotted a single soaring condor in all its beauty.
The lectures for the day included Jenny Kingsley discussing Meet the North, Jessica Farrar emphasizing the importance of sustainable seafood and finally Elise Lockton sharing the gripping story of Amundsen & Scott and the Race to the Pole.
