Ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmas! Snow was falling lightly as we navigated through the Lemaire Channel, on our way to Pleneau Bay, for the morning activity of Zodiac cruising through the iceberg graveyard. There were plenty of spectators to watch as our boats explored the area; penguins, crabeater seals and assortment of other birds, watched as we cruised the bay! Of course, the large icebergs that float into the bay were all around us, complete with huge icicles hanging off their edges! During lunch National Geographic Endurance cruised back north through the Lemaire toward Paradise Bay for our afternoon landing and hike at Brown Station. It was a fabulous way to spend Christmas!
