Starting around Cape Horn
As we start to round Cape Horn, there is a lighthouse on the Western side of the Cape and a sculpt piece of albatross that is a memorial to the travelers that never made it around the Horn. Again, the week before our crossing, it was rough and stormy, everyone aboard (including crew) was seasick, and it was generally a pretty messy crossing. I personally was rather hoping for some of those rough seas and stormy weather so I could truly experience being on the water. But, alas, it was supposedly one of the smoothest trips in years...sigh!
