At Sea and Arriving to Nome

  • Aboard the National Geographic Orion
  • Arctic
This voyage crosses the International Date Line, so this is the second DER for July 8. Our morning at sea was punctuated with lectures and delicious meals and of all strange things: sun! The Bering Sea was certainly not in its famed state of upheaval. Vitus Bering probably never saw the glassy seas, sunshine, and warm temperatures we experienced as we crossed from Russia, back to the USA. In the late afternoon, Nome was in sight and by the time cocktail hour rolled around, we were already comfortably alongside. It is always bittersweet to come to the end of an expedition, and as the guest slideshow rolled and stories were rehashed we all felt very close indeed.
