Learing the plant life on Gabel Island (Jenny Fiebig)
We are moving on. I can not express the beauty of Antarctica. The land features are massive. Cliffs of rock and ice jut straight out of the water -- exposing harsh terrain. Our boat looks like a miniature toy next to the land. I had never seen so many glaciers in my life! I will never forget the beauty of this place. Today we landed on Cuverville Island and Waterboat Point. We watched a leopard seal catch and eat a penguin today. It was hard to watch -- but it is amazing to see the natural course of life. The days are cloudless and warm for the most part -- about 40 degrees.
