This morning a dense fog covered our little piece of planet earth, dampening more than the decks of National Geographic Explorer. We were all excited about visiting this landing site after our expedition leader Jimmy had given us such rave reviews of the place. It would be, after all, one of the few places we could see all three species of brush-tailed penguins in one place. He had also talked about the incredible beauty of the bay, packed with icebergs of magnificent grandeur. His voice over the PA at breakfast was hopeful as he announced that we would spend our morning listening to a couple lectures and hope that the fog would lift in time for us to venture out after lunch. With an almost clairvoyant ability he was right on the money as we watched the sky and the view clear before our eyes during our mid-day meal.
