The sea gods were kind to us today for our northbound crossing of the Drake Passage. We woke up on the gently rolling waves and icy blue waters of the Southern Ocean, and the still line of the horizon surrounded us as we were treated to an amazing brunch. The conditions were perfect for observing wildlife; throughout the day we spotted fin whales, humpbacks, many kinds of seabirds and albatrosses, and even two errant icebergs!

A serene, restful day at sea.
