Drake(ing) around...

Since we left the Horn yesterday morning we have been in the Drake passage on our way to Antarctica.
The weather has been quite kind to us most of the time, nothing like the weather that the ship i talked about yesterday experienced! Good for me;0)

During the day the wind has picked up and so have the waves. Currently we have 20 m/sek and wave heigths between 5.5 and 8 meters, thus some passengers and staff are finding it hard to keep their lunch on the "inside".

I tried out some photography of birds in flights, with some tips from Dominic (our Aussi photographer) and John our Canadian bilogist and photographer. The results were not to bad nor to good either, but it is moving forward..

Tomorrow morning we are landing in Deception Island at hrs 0600 and will attempt a walk over to Baily head and the penguin colonies. Last time we got hammered by a blizzard, so we hope to avoid this again?

Well i am off to enjoy my dinner and hopefully it will stay where it is supposed to stay until i reach land...
