Day 59 Antarctica

Today we visited Palmer Station where we brought some researchers abord to give leactures on Antarctia research.  Our  stay in the Antarctic was shorted because Captain Mercer wanted to get an early start to try and get a head start ahead of the pending storm.  It will be high winds and rough seas as we head to Ushuaia…  I was invited to the Bridge with Lynn, Erika, Barry & Jane.  The Captain showed us around and discussed the day’s events.  It was a bit sad as we sailed away from the Antarctic but it was nice to have a couple of humpback whales come along to say goodbye….
