Picture of the Day for
The morning started with the
collection of some final samples of the pack ice. The remainder of the day was spent moving in
the general direction of Palmer Station, looking for penguins. Although a few birds
have been sighted, the ice conditions did not allow us to catch them. The ice
has been too thin to walk on, but too thick to run a Zodiac in. Given the
difficulty of catching birds on the ice, we shifted gears and went to
