ROCKING AND ROLLING
- - - through Baffin Bay and the Davis Strait. These two bodies of water connect the Arctic Ocean with the Atlantic. Last night we sailed through the roughest seas we've had yet. Today it was much too rough to chance walking on the Promenade Deck with our Nordic poles. We wouldn't be able to walk in a straight line but rather roll from side to side. Norma tried a couple of rounds but came in as it was time for lunch.
We've seen some spectacular icebergs on this part of the journey. The Captain is staying far away from them. We did see a ship beside one this morning and the ship looked like a dot in comparison. The icebergs are enormous.
Besides eating, the only thing we accomplished today was making earrings in the beading class. We've been reading and napping all day. Sheer bliss.
Dinner is in the dining room tonight.
Tomorrow we land in Illulissat, Greenland, where we have a hike planned to the water's edge with hopes of seeing the Sermermiut Glacier calve and, of course, birds.
