Today, we continued our course from South Georgia to Tristan da Cunha on our last sea day before we reach the island. The wind had veered so that it was on the bow, but the barometer continued to rise. We are looking for good weather as we visit Tristan.

We continue to use our time well through presentations on the volcanic islands that we will visit in the coming weeks and the “hot spots” in the Earth’s mantle that give rise to these volcanic islands. We also enjoyed a presentation on the 135-year history of the National Geographic Society and magazine. We had a second workshop on smartphones and an introduction to Tristan da Cunha by our National Geographic guest lecturer.
