Molting King Penguins, South Georgia Island (Amy Sonbuchner)
So far the Drake Passage is uneventful. We attend a lecture on bird migration and go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the kitchen. It looks like a challenging work environment and makes me appreciate all that fresh French bread even more. The captain calls a special meeting and announces a surprise landing on Cape Horn for tomorrow morning. The agreeable Drake means that we are ahead of schedule and have extra time. We all feel very lucky.
