Dec 15, 2018 - National Geographic Orion
Heading home! Last evening National Geographic Orion left the South Shetland Islands and entered the Drake Passage as we made our way toward Ushuaia, and the end of our incredible journey to Antarctica. It was a day to get caught up on some sleep, listen to a number of presentations, and get to see some of those amazing seabirds that patrol the Southern Ocean, which they call home! The seas were kind to us in general, a little bumpy in the morning, but settled down later in the day. All-in-all a pretty relaxing day after a very busy time on the Antarctic Peninsula!
