Traveling Through Drake's Passage

Hi All,

Just want to say Hi and let you know we are at the moment traveling through Drake's Passage which is more like Drake's Lake today. Calm, blue and there a many birds flying around our ship."
All here is well. Amazing journey so far- more than I could ever have imagined. I came on this journey to follow in the footpaths of the amazing explorers: Amundsen, Scott, and the Boss, Shackleton. How appropriate it was that I should have Neil Armstrong at my table at the Welcome dinner.

Many people on this ship are world travelers and some have visited all seven continents- some are on their 3rd or 4th trip to Antarctica. Many have taken me under their wings as the " Newbie".

Please be patient with the blog. I will try to upload pictures at some time- but much here, like Mother Nature, is out of my hands.
