Three-Years Ago (27-December-2014) — South Atlantic Ocean

Gone to See Antarctica 2014/5:  Day 12 – At Sea on the Hurtigruten MS Fram in the South Atlantic Ocean

A 1 minute video from the observation deck of the Hurtigruten MS Fram of the sea conditions while traveling between South Georgia and Antarctica. I didn’t get sick, but remember that there were not many folks in the dining room. I did notice that my GPS track for the day had about six times as many data points from all of the rocking and rolling. We were going into some really heavy head winds, which reduced the speed of the ship from about 15 knots to 7 knots.
