From sunshine to storm
What a day! We woke up very early this morning as the FRAM headed south through the Lemaire Channel. Because of its scenic beauty this area is also named the “Kodak Channel”. The sky was clear blue and there was hardly any wind. Therefore, the snowy peaks were illuminated by the golden rays of the rising sun and these were beautifully reflected in the water.
It was an amazing experience for many of us. The Fram headed ¬southward through the channel then we turned around, reversed direction and headed back northward through the channel (eriameL) toward our next stop, Port Lockroy.
Regardless of the weather, this evening, our spirits will brighten as the always popular Fram fashion show gets underway.
