Today was full on an Antarctic scale, that is to say, HUGE. While our visiting scientists searched for limpets, and the undersea team took the ROV exploring, the rest of us spent the morning kayaking amongst bergs on a glassy bay at James Ross Island. Afterwards, a few brave souls polar plunged into the same water.

We repositioned to Snow Hill Island in the afternoon to visit the hut where the infamous Nordeskjold expedition spent 24 long months, and we got to enjoy the beach littered with the same fossils that were here with them.
