Day 138 At Sea
We left the Antarctica a little after midnight last night and headed for the Falkland Islands… As the day progressed, we received a number of announcements from Captain Olav about the conditions in the Falklands. To make a long story short, we will be skipping the Falklands and heading straight for Buenos Aires. The forecast was for 70 MPH winds and 30+ foot seas…. It mystifies me why we couldn't tender ashore in the Falklands. OK, maybe it doesn’t mystify me, but I am disappointed but agree it would be impossible and not safe at all. Good decision!. I just hope that I don’t get thrown out of bed during the night. Henk Mensink, the Hotel Manager joined our table for dinner and it was a great evening. I can’t wait for warmer weather in the coming days….
