Icebergs

As my Antarctica expedition continues, it seems to get better and better!!

I signed up for the overnight camping option. Which allows me to say I have camped on Antarctica...



We had our bivy bags on this little point of land away from the Penguins.



And it never really gets dark either....



Lots of smiles on and off the zodiacs



We headed through more amazing areas .....





More and More Icebergs



We came to a place called Iceberg Alley, and took Zodiac trips all around to see wildlife and enjoy the immense Icebergs





A few seals lounging on the bergs.



More Bergs





This blue streak was great. It was caused by the iceberg cracking and filling with water then freezing with no air bubbles.



Back to the ship



After Iceberg Alley..... The crew needed to move a large iceberg away from the ship.

What? You think I'm not here with the rest of you.

Those chin strap guys sure are cute. That camping sure does look cold but dang it looks like a good time there.

Mark, thanks so much for continuing to share your adventure with the rest of us.

Btw

Mark, I have it on good authority that your friend's daughter got a postcard from Santa, and it was sent from the North Pole!

Happy New Year,
David

Happy New Year Mark
I'm glad that your trip was everything you wanted it to be. Great photos too (what's new!) :-)
Shirley, Kiwi & I are looking forward to welcoming you into New Zealand/Aotearoa in the near future. Hopefully we will have our bikes prised out of Argentina by then so we can go riding.
Arohanui,
Ken and Kiwi
