Ushuaia Excursions

We woke up today with no rocking of the ship to induce morning motion sickness. Last night we arrived in Port to send our sick patient to the hospital to get the medical attention that they needed. All of us onboard hope they will make a full recovery.

We had two possible excursions to join during the day that allowed us to explore a little more of the beautiful surroundings of the southernmost city on the continent.

The Catamaran tour of the Beagle Channel departed at nine, and gave passengers a close up view of seals and local bird life that was missed during the Fram's passage.

A hike in the afternoon afforded nice views and an opportunity to stretch tired legs on what used to be a glacier above the city of Ushuaia.

We ended the day with the Captain's Farewell in the observation lounge, to the tune of Fram's best singers.
