Today was simply too gorgeous for words. I spent much of the day with my mouth hanging open, in complete awe of our surroundings.
I hadn’t slept well last night, due to the rolling of the boat (ironic!) so this afternoon I was sorely tempted to skip the zodiac trip and snooze a siesta instead. Oh boy. I am so glad I didn’t – which goes to prove that you rarely regret the things you do, and often regret the things that you don’t.
Today was spectacular. I wouldn’t have missed it for the world – or a snooze. Words are not adequate to describe it, so I am going to give Words the night off, and put Pictures on duty instead. Enjoy my little slideshow, featuring seals, penguins, icebergs, and me. Music is “Antarctica Echoes”, by Vangelis.
Just so you know… as we get further south, our internet is going to become increasingly unreliable. So if you don’t hear from me for a few days, don’t panic. We haven’t hit an iceberg and sunk. I will continue to write my blogs and post them when I am able to get online again.
