Postcards From Antarctica

January 14, 2005 : Due to 50 knot winds and huge waves the expedition team was prevented from landing on Deception Island. The chance to swim in Antarctica was to be on Deception in a thermal spring. In order to get thier official certificate as an Antarctic Bather, the Eckerd team and thier new found friends donned their suits and the crew of the Andrea offered up the unexpected water.
