December 30, 2018. Halfmoon Island

While enjoying lunch on the uppper deck, we spot our first iceberg. We are cruising in the South Shetland Islands, off the Bransfield Strait.

First landing on our trip is on Halfmoon Island. The lonely structures are the remnants of an Argentine research base. This is our first look at the chinstrap penguins with a few scattered seals on the ice.
