Danco Island & Neko Harbour
Antarctic Dream

Hiking the Antarctic terrainHiking the Antarctic terrain (Mike Hoyer)
Apparently there was a rough crossing of Gerlache Straight last night; I slept through it all. We woke up to heavy snow falling at Danco Island. We made a zodiac landing. The views continue to amaze me beyond words.

Neko Harbour; we have finally touched mainland Antarctica, a two hour climb overlooking a pretty bay. We watched several glaciers calve. Saw many rookeries with penguins already sitting patiently on eggs. ... Each day, after the hike, i park myself in the dining room which allows for amazing viewing as we socialize over wonderful food; it is here that I write a few cards and this journal.
