Crossing the Antarctic Circle is quite a feat.
The Antarctic Circle indicates that the area contained within it receives at least one 24 hour period of daylight once a year. This area changes depending on the tilt of the Earth’s axis.
As we passed it, we all went to the bow and were given mimosas in celebration of the event, with the captain letting out a long pull on the horn as we passed.
The scenery as we passed was almost indescribable. Almost but I will try 🙂
We entered an ice field with LOTS of seals laying out on the ice pieces. Some looked up when they saw us, others just continued sleeping. There were a couple of packs swimming together, what a sight to see!
I’m fortunate in that I have been able to cross both the Antarctic and Arctic Circles.
