After two incredible landings the previous day at
we had our last Antarctica landing on Port Charcot.
There was also a Zodiac cruise around Cape Tuxen (outside the bay
and to the left) but I stayed on land as we had three days at sea coming up.
I was coming down with a cold (plus the lack of sleep was catching up on me),
and the cloudy day made me feel even chillier ... but
I stuck around for the Polar Plunge! ;-)
Needless to say, the Polar Plunge was one of the most entertaining things
on the entire trip. I should have done it with them ... but didn't know they were
planning it, so didn't have a swimsuit on underneath ... but heck, I could
have gone in my skivvies. In my defense, I felt lousy and had the
... but heck, it was our last stop, so
I guess maybe next time I'm in Antarctica!
All good things must come to an end and despite the bothersome cold,
I was the last passengers off of the last zodiac to return to the ship.
Read more about that and the return voyage of
the Drake Passage.
