Greetings from the bottom of the world! For some unknown reason, we have the best Internet service since we boarded the ship last Wednesday. I’ve decided to strike while the iron is HOT, and am posting a few pictures from our first 5 hours in Antarctica. The photos probably don’t do justice to what I’m seeing in front of me at the front of Crystal Symphony’s Palm Court. I’m here with a couple of hundred other passengers taking in the sights. Wish you were here to share them with us!
AAC CPA at about 6:15 this morning – icebergs in the distance
Lido Deck totally cleared of everything
Humpback whale sighting
AAC CPA with mainland Antarctica behind him
Taken from the top of the ship on Deck 12
Pretty amazing, right?
More to follow, as our Internet connection allows!

YES! I beat Lynn to the comments 🙂 Congrats on reaching the 7th continent. To say we are green with envy is an understatement. So pleased you have internet connection so we don’t have to wait days for these amazing images. Thank you for posting. Now get outside and enjoy this spectacular scenery. Love to you both. WE miss you xxxx

It’s pretty amazing, no? PS. We just got several texts that Bette M is doing “Hello, Dolly!” on Broadway – you interested?? 🙂
Sorry Lynne – I mistakenly omitted the ‘e’ in your name.
Yes to Hello Dolly. I will look it up!
Wow to the photos – fantastic. Wish we were there with you.
Ashley – Love it that we are in competition over who posts first !!
I would love to see Bette M in Hello Dolly, but its a bit far to go for an evening.
Can’t wait for the next lot of photos. xx
I think you and Garry should definitely make the trip to see The Devine One. 🙂
Wow. You can really see the effects of global warming there. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such naked rocks in photos of Antarctica. Looking forward to your next post.
Hi Kathryn: First of all thanks for reading and following my blog. I cannot begin to tell you how beautiful it is down here, even if Antarctica is not what it was 10, 20, 30 years ago. It is still amazing in every respect. I’m about to post today’s entry – please look for it. And thanks again.
