SA: Antarctic Experience Day 2

Sunday, January 22, 2023

We decided to eat in the Lido for dinner because Chuck wanted to be sure he was at the Casino when they called names for the drawing. I had the spicy shrimp, and he had some shrimp and some roast beef.

We made it to the Casino in time for the drawing but unfortunately Chuck’s name was not called. There will be another drawing tomorrow night.

We went to the last set of the Rolling Stone Lounge band before calling it a night.

I thought it snowed heavily yesterday but that was nothing compared to the snowy conditions we had today. The Captain allowed people to go out on the bow but he cautioned everyone about slippery conditions. The crew did their best to keep it swept and shoveled off. All my photos from today look grainy because of the heavy snow falling.

I was in our room getting into my winter gear when the Captain announced we were entering Paradise Bay and “whales on the port side!” – “whales on the starboard side!” So many whales.

Then he announced that there were Gentoo penguins in the water. (He always sounded as excited as we were.)

And when there wasn’t any marine life to see, the icebergs kept us entertained.

All this excitement and it wasn’t even 10:00 a.m. yet.
