Although I have been going out to sea on research vessels for almost a decade, sailing in icy conditions was definitely a new experience for me!
Our ECW was fantastic in the cold! Look at all of us in our classic Red Parkas!
Because of the weather and reduced visibility, we slowed our approach and delayed our arrival at Palmer Station until tomorrow morning (docking needs to happen during daylight hours).
However, that tiny delay could stop me from being super excited to be close to our final destination, Antarctica! Bucket list item so close to being checked off!!!!
