Cruising toward Kapp Lee...

on Edgeoya Island in search of sea ice (pack ice) and seals and walrus. The Clipper Adventurer is an ice rated ship (not a breaker) so this should be, well, adventurous. Stay tuned!

UPDATE: We entered the Freemansundet channel past Kapp Lee earlier this morning and indeed have encountered pack ice. One floe had a bearded seal out sunning itself but unfortunately it did not tolerate our presence. We've since turned about and are heading down the channel back towards Kapp Lee, with the intention of a landing and hike sometime after lunch.
