From the Antarctic Peninsula to the Ross Sea

Part 3 of 7

We have to cover many, many miles across the Bel­lings­hau­sen Sea and the Amund­sen Sea to the Ross Sea. Peter I Island does not want us, so we have some quiet days befo­re we get to the ice of the nor­t­hern Ross Sea. First Emper­or pen­gu­in sightin­gs and even a Ross seal, hap­py to let us have a very good look at it, defi­ni­te­ly a high­light, for me one of my big, secret wis­hes that I had for this voya­ge, my second one fol­lo­wing this itin­era­ry.

Hopes and emo­ti­ons of all kinds are rising as the ice fields are get­ting big­ger and den­ser. The Ross Sea does have a big ice year now, the­re is more ice than the­re has been for quite some years and for a while we can’t be cer­tain to get any­whe­re near McMur­do Sound at all.
