On January 29, we had an early morning wake-up call to watch as
the ship passed through the beautiful Lemaire Channel.This
waterway, located between the peninsular mainland and Booth Island,
measures about one mile wide and seven miles long. The walls consist
of high, steep, snow-covered mountains with many glaciers lining
morning transit of the channel was overcast but when we returned
through it in the afternoon, the skies had cleared and the sun was
out, making the scenery even more spectacular.
as icing on the cake, we were treated to a glorious sunset, with
the tops of the mountains aglow.
