This morning found National Geographic Orion a little farther south. With the change in latitude came a change in weather. Rain greeted us early in the day, and seas were a bit rougher than days past. Everyone spent time relaxing after the festivities of Christmas and enjoying great food—all day. There were some excellent staff presentations about plankton, seabirds, and the history of National Geographic. With the winds picking up, New Zealand seabirds swarmed around the ship. As we bobbed and swayed south, the sun set on another ocean adventure. What a day!
