Passing Dover

A sea day with diverse subjects for lectures and chats from the Expedition Team - Geology, Ornithology, Architectural Style, History and Photography.  
By late afternoon Fram reached the English Channel, an arm of the Atlantic Ocean that separates southern England from northern France, and joins the North Sea to the Atlantic. Named the Dover Strait, the narrowest part is only 34 km wide.  Today was (just) clear enough to see land on both sides.

Musician Antonio, a native of the Azores, played both afternoon and evening, and crew members sang some of their favourite songs to guests to round off the day.
