Perhaps I got carried away with this panorama.
Expanse of the horizon feels wholly endless.
The air here is clear and feels good in the lungs.
After three days of trying to get to station and only making progress of half the length of the boat in the last 24 hours, today it was decided that the L.M. Gould must start to make it's way to open water and then back up north to Punta Arenas. Just a few nautical miles away from station and well within viewing distance, it is a bit heart breaking for the 5 people on station who were supposed to be going home. They'll have to wait another 6 weeks, unless the ice blows out by the time the Gould gets to clear water. Unlikely with current weather conditions...
The light here is like none other that I have experienced. Sunset last for hours.
Difficult to know when to sleep with 17 hours of daylight and the rest a dreamy twilight.
