Admiralty Bay, Antarctica

Awoke this morning to calm waters and sunshine after a rough passage over the Drake yesterday. Looked out the window and saw our first iceberg. We were outside early to see the beautiful landscape of Antarctica at Admiralty Bay.  Saw several research stations on the coast, and also two large penguin colonies one Adele and the other Chinstrap penguins.  Lots of ice floes, some with penguins or seals on them.  After several hours in Admiralty Bay, we headed for Hope Bay.  There were many huge tabular icebergs blocking the bay, so no hope of viewing Hope Bay, and traveling to our next destination.
