Drake Passage -- Land in the distance, Cape Hoorn
Antarctica - pure awe for 19 days...

After endless sea for hours upon hours, Cape Hoorn was a welcome sight. We sailed the entire day which ended in a fun evening ceremony thanking the captain for his safe leadership, and our tour guides singing some funny tunes about our voyage. Rolf showed a great slide show of our entire trip, almost bringing me to tears. He then revealed the winners of the photo competition. Amazingly, I won the wildlife category for my Skua close up photo (first one in this journal photo album). Yippee! We all stayed up late into the night enjoying the friendships we had made and recounting the tales of our journey. Sadly, the end was near.
