Blue sky, warm winds and fantastic views
The South Shetland Islands (Fran Andrews)
I forgot to mention that before we landed on the continent, we had a rather long afternoon cruise to get to our landing point. The afternoon turned out to be the most glorious day of our entire trip. The sun came out and we were comfortable out on the decks with just a sweater. The views were unbelievable. We took a million or so photos. We couldn’t stop taking pictures with the brilliant blue sky, the pristine white of the snow covered mountains, eerie white and blue ice bergs floating by and the incredible reflections of all of these in the blue glass top of the water. What an incredible prelude to our much anticipated continental landing.
After completing our landing on the continent, our ugly duckling boat began heading north on our way home.
