Birds and Bergs
Day 12: Tuesday, January 15, 2002
We were priviledged to have on board a distinguished team of Antarctic Scientists to lecture about the white continent, and to provide safe navigation in these waters that often haven't been adequately charted for vessels the size of the Rnydam.
Dr. Lawson Brigham was the Expedition Leader and Lecturer. He is a polar researcher
The petrols glide along beside us. Winds don't seem to affect their graceful flight just above the surface of the water.
It's 11:11 AM and now we can see two at once! These rectangular icebergs are measured in fractions of the mile. These are close to a mile square.
This one is a little closer than the other two.
