Isla Hornos or Cape Horn… March 3/19… just after 7 am.

We are at 55 minutes south in the “Southern Ocean” on relatively calm day unlike the first time our lecturer was here……18 metre or 60 foot seas…..OMG… I can’t imagine that!

Ocean is 100 metres deep below us.

La Boreal and Zaandam, 2 other ships are here besides us. The sun rise was gorgeous but the Isla Hornos was shrouded in cloud. Apparently there is a sculpture (which we could not see) made of 2 pieces but together look like an albatross. BTW they are quite huge…. too hard to get a picture of.

It was about 9C but the wind came up out of nowhere and so did the swells. The captain didn’t want the ship hanging around cuz there was a “low” coming our way so he got us on our way.
