Whales, Whales Everywhere
We had just laid down for a nap after Wednesday's lunch when Brent announces that there are Type A killer whales off the port bow. The captain slows the ship in Dallmann Bay and slowly maneuvers us near the whales. It's also lunch time for them. They have just made a kill and are feeding. We don't know what they killed, but they seem to be enjoying their meal. These wonderful whales are fascinating and stay with us for two hours.
After dinner Dan, Martha, William and I go up to the Observation Lounge. We are there for a short period when someone shouts out "whales!" Four humpback whales are playing around the ship, which is again maneuvering very slowly. They are also feeding and put on an incredible show for about an hour.
The scenery and light in the bay is also incredibly beautiful.
After a nightcap in the ship lounge we fall asleep to the rocking of the ship - we are re-entering the Drake Passage. I'm happy I applied an anti-sea sickness patch after dinner.
