Today we reached the southernmost point of our journey, passing the Antarctic Circle. Just after passing 66 degrees and 33 minutes south, we were greeted to by a pod of type A killer whales. It was a quintessentially Antarctic day, starting under moody clouds with a brisk wind that blew our long locks in front of our camera lenses as we photographed passing ice and marine mammals. As is typical down here, nothing is typical, so we left our afternoon expedition with rosy cheeks from the glare of the sun on calm seas. It truly was a day that will dance around in our hearts and minds for a long time to come.
