Last Day of the Drake
Exquisite Antarctica 2011

Today, I feel like a human. I attend breakfast, though I don't have much of an appetite. I watch a documentary film called Rounding the Horn, I spend time on the bridge watching seabirds, I finish another book and watch as Cape Horn goes by. This evening, we enjoy a fabulous Captain's Dinner with bison and crab and enjoy our last evening meal on board. After dinner, everyone meets in the lounge to exchange contact information and recap the best moments from our voyage. I don't want this to end. At all. I consider quitting my job to become a research scientist in Antarctica. I consider this very strongly for a few moments before realizing that it wouldn't feel special if I lived here.
