Around Cape Horn

(and back again!)

We approached Cape Horn through calm Atlantic waters.....

And the folks all came out for this moment....

  

and we all posed for pictures!

  

Horn Rock!

Immediately we passed Horn Rock the weather looked ominous ahead....

and the Pacific seas started to build

and build.........

and build.....

to the point that the water was rolling up out of the deck pools
and the deck tables and chairs - and passengers - were cascading about....

  

At this point the Captain announced we were going to reverse course...
and the ship turned dramatically and hightailed it back to the
calmer Atlantic waters, where as night fell, an
inland passage was used to continue the trip....
