We are now well into Drake’s Passage – it continues to go smoothly enough for us as the Captain is heading in a North Westerly direction taking us a little out of our way but missing the large storm that is directly ahead of us. We thank the Captain for his decision – long may this weather in Drake’s Passage last for us!
We are again enjoying the lectures that are available and enjoying our third one of the day – the race to the South Pole. The middle one on seals was very informative and I picked up some new biological facts that I am sure I can thread into my lessons in the future.
I hope that these pictures give you a flavour of our amazing trip!
