Sadly, our time at South Georgia has come to an end. However, today was filled with smooth seas and wandering albatross. Our first day at sea heading to the Falklands was a time to look back on our magical time in South Georgia, and to begin preparing for our time in the Falklands.

Our time has come, the circle is closed. Twenty days ago, we left Ushuaia. Headed towards Antarctica, the infamous Drake Passage, and certainly some unknown. Now we return, after an incredible voyage to Antarctica, South Georgia, the Falklands, and a lot of ocean in between. Calm seas in the Beagle channel were certainly enjoyed, but it was a bit shocking to see trees and civilization. We did enjoy the sunshine, dolphins, and abundant birds. I think for many of us, we wished we were heading back out instead of into Ushuaia, but the memories we have created will last a lifetime.
