At our briefing the night before we were told that the weather looked good and when we get into the passage it will be more like the “Drake Lake”. No wind and calm as calm as the passage can be. We were rolling in 1 – 2 metre seas. I find the difference between rolling in the Drake Passage and bouncing around in Pacific on the Navimag is on the Navimag we were getting hit by waves. On the Ushuaia the entire sea seems to be rolling and you can see the swells develop and move towards you.
A good quote From the adventure a director. “I have not seen the Drake this calm, ever in 9 years. You can bet it’s not going to be like this on the way back (big huge shit eating grin). I hope the Drake is more like itself when we cross back in 10 days. Come on Drake you big sissy let’s see how much game you have got.
Also we are also not going to starve. Food is always available and the bar is reasonably priced so I have that going for me as well.
Tonight’s movie appropriate enough was March of the Penguins
