The excitement didn't seem to end today. On our way to Cape Horn we spotted a group of Sea Lions playing in the sea and later several Fin Whales which were a bit too far away to get clear pics of but at least I saw them blow and the occasional fin.
We arrived at Cape Horn Island at around 5:30 and circumnavigated it slowly. It was cloudy and a bit windy but we still could see the rocks, the lighthouse and the albatross monument clearly. The winds were quiet, too, and even now that we've entered open sea (the dreaded Drake Passage), wind speed is only 4-5 on the Beaufort scale.
Dinner soon, then working through today's photos and then hopefully a good night's sleep. We'll be able to visit the bridge tomorrow so that will hopefully be interesting.
