Most everyone enjoyed sleeping in this morning as we softly rolled with the motion of the ocean. This day at sea offered us time to rest, work on the amazing photographs taken on the voyage, and spend time with new friends.

In the first presentation of the day, naturalist Eric Guth explained how he fell in love with the ice and got his start with Lindblad Expeditions. In the afternoon, Jonny Reid gave a talk on acoustics in marine mammals. Jamie Coleman gave the final presentation on threats to shorebirds and the ocean ecosystem on which they depend.

Occasionally, waves of the Drake Passage sloshed onto the bow and sides of the ship, but the Lounge, located in the aft of the ship, was relatively stable and, fortunately, most of us had acquired our “sea legs.”
