Last adventure before turning for home

We dropped anchor off Port Lockroy last night and of all the amazing sights we've seen, that was the most amazing of all. The glacier surrounded the ship and the sea was glass. There just are no words.

Todays adventure was the British station at Port lockroy, more penguins and the choppy sea and rock climb to see the chinstrap penguins which where the last ones on the list.

We're heading out now, watching for whales in the Gerlache passage.

Tonight we head back into the Drake passage and they tell us the weather is deteriorating, so well see what that means. I'll try and catch up with more later. I am going to be so sorry to leave this place!
