More fun with phone photography! This morning we explored the impressive ruins of the whaling station at Grytviken and I experimented with shooting in the hidden filters on my iPhone. Where are they hidden? In the Messages app! Start a message to yourself, tap the five-pointed star on the left, tap the filters icon (three overlapping circles), choose your filter with Live review, then close the filter choice menu and take the shot. I had a lot of fun using the Watercolor, Aged Film. and Comic Book filters to capture some of my impressions of this strange, abandoned factory.

On this busy day at sea, we are busy packing, attending interesting talks, getting important information about disembarkation, and having wonderful meals. At teatime, there are Swedish pancakes, berries, chocolate, ice cream, whipped cream and more! Soon, it’s time to dress up for the Captain’s Farewell Cocktail Party, where we reflect on our amazing experiences over the past twenty days. There was the Drake Passage, Antarctica, South Orkney Islands, South Georgia Island, and the Falkland Islands. So much history and wildlife. At dinner, oh my gosh, give me everything, especially the soup made from wild Falkland celery! The sea is calm, and the sun has come out as we head to Ushuaia, where our journey began. Yes, we are more than what we were before. We have grown and what a pleasure it is.
