Instead of blow by blow accounts of this recent trip, I am going to post a few photo galleries of portions of the trip. The first is a group of seabird photos taken in the Drake Passage or along the Antarctic Peninsula.
Cape Petrel or Pintado
Light-mantled Sooty Albatross (great views of this species this trip)
Blue Petrel - this species is very difficult to get a photo of. They are fast and twist along the waves but this trip they were coming near the boat because of the wind direction and I was able to get these photos.
