Storms hit the Drake Passage and Antarctica from time to time, and it seems we are just in the middle of one.  Despite that… our expedition leader was able to find a wind-free area in the middle of the peninsula, Danco Island, and we were able to hike up to see the wonderful views from the top. Just on the way down to the landing, the blizzard made its way through the channel, and we made our way to the ship just in time.

After a wonderful landing we sailed north, away from the storm, on our way to the Weddell. We could even enjoy some sunshine on our way!

Tomorrow another great day of exploration awaits.
