Just a quick blog to say that we are doing fine although we have definitely experienced "Drake's Shake" since yesterday morning as we have navigated through the storm on our way back to Ushuaia. We are about half-way now and this morning we have blue skies although still rough sea! We should be through the worst of it by this afternoon.

Both Michael and I have done just fine with the rock and roll but we have heard about other passengers and crew falling out of bed with the big waves. For me, the rocking almost lulled me to sleep and as usual, I slept like a baby!

It is now 11am and the sky is completely blue with sun everywhere. We still can’t see land but we are almost at the end of Drake’s Passage and have all survived! What an adventure!!
