Cuverville Island and Waterboat Point
The White Continent onboard the Antarctic Dream

Learing the plant life on Gabel IslandLearing 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.
