Entering Sea Ice

What a difference a day makes!

As the sun set, the sea settled to a perfect state zero, with not a breath of wind or a ripple on the surface. We entered broken sea ice at about 20:00, steaming easily through it heading due south at a mighty 12 knots.

For a while, as the fog closed in, it looked as if we were about to sail off the edge of the earth.

But we didn't. So I took these photosPosted by Picasa
