Leaving a place at the end of a trip is always bittersweet, especially when leaving a place as amazing as Antarctica. Our first full day at sea, heading back to civilization, brought a bit more wind than our journey south. It wasn’t too bad though, considering what the Drake Passage can produce. There were many seabirds out enjoying the breeze, which allowed us great views of albatross and petrels. With lectures by the onboard naturalists, we all learned just a little bit more about the special place through which we had just traveled.
