• Cape Horn – END OF THE WORLD!!! – What a miserable experience. We climbed the 160 steps in heavy rain, strong winds and cold temps. The weather has not changed a bit during the visit to the memorial statue and the lighthouse. Natan had difficulties to see the Bird in the memorial statue, and got upset when Maggie tried to explain to him where to look. He finally saw it. With all the enduring discomfort we can now checkmark it on our “been there” list.
• The afternoon excursion was a 2 km hike at Wulaia bay to a top of a hill from which we had wonderful vistas of the bay & islands. The not very interesting museum at the bottom of the hill reflects the history of the encounter of Darwin with the local aborigines as well as other local history and legends. It felt good for a change to hike without having to fight the wind and rain, and even enjoy some sunshine.
• The Grand Finale Dinner was very good for a change. Natan had some issues with the prior dinner’s main courses quality & quantity.
• The after dinner farewell party was fun. Natan felt tipsy and wanted to bid on the navigation map which was auctioned at the party. Maggie stopped his nonsense after his first bid. It finally sold for about $300.
