Today, we reached the sandy little island of Moffen – the northern most point of our cruise – around 8:00am. The sun gave the island a brown orange colour and in the same colour we saw our first Walruses on the beach. We could be happy. We have been able to watch two bigger groups of these giants under the seal. Most of them were sleeping but there was at least a little movement in the groups so that we could see the huge tasks. Here at the beach of Moffen you can see only the males. The females and their calves stay more near Franz Josef Land. It was a perfect start for an expedition day.
