Yesterday morning I woke up and walked to the deck on the fourth floor in pure amazement. The sun was very bright, the sky almost completely cloudless, the sea was covered by ice again and there land on the horizon for the first time since we left: Bennett Island (76° 42’ N and 149° 00’E).
Last Thursday we had a mid-cruise dinner with lovely food (the cooks and galley girls are splendid!) and great company. It is nice to dress up sometimes instead of appearing with muddy clothing at the dinner everyday!
