Horseshoe Island and Stonington Island

Today, we explored Marguerite Bay, way down South at the Antarctic Peninsula, where only very few ships get to every year. In the morning, we visited the British Base Y at Horseshoe Island. After dinner, we started our second landing at Stonington Island, where everybody got a long evening on shore. We got to see a fantastic sunset! However, this far South it doesn`t really get dark, and still at midnight, we observe orange clouds at the horizon.
