A Travellerspoint blog



sunny 30 °F


We have sailed from the Antarctic Peninsula to the South Shetland Islands and are now on one of the South Shetland Islands called Half Moon. And we are basking in the sun! Really. The water is cold and ice and snow predominate, but the sun warms us under our parkas. Ah, good old summertime on the Seventh Continent.

There’s a sail away party on deck as we leave for Ushuaia, Argentina, and the predictions are that we will sail across another Drake’s Lake and arrive back in South America mid-day Sunday.

The photos need no commentary, save
1. to point out that this is a NEW kind of penguin, the chinstrap variety, and everyone is very excited about that, and
2. to identify the last shot as the view outside our cabin door. See the smooth bay!
