Last night in Ushuaia
Our departure has been delayed by weather, a stiff SE easterly which is right on the nose as you head to open ocean. This delay has created an opportunity to fine tune our communications system, my terribly slow computer was completely gutted, a new operating program installed and now it works like a charm.
We are hoping to pull away from the dock with all provisions onboard and safely stowed by mid-day tomorrow Jan 29th.
We will stop at Puerta William, Chile which we pass while transiting the Beagle Channel. There we'll fill up with fresh water and then be on our way.
I definitely feel more than ready to begin our journey, leaving South America behind and to be finally bound for South Georgia. Although it has been on my mind constantly and my days, weeks and months have been dictated by South Georgia, the island itself has been in the far distance, out of reach but the scenes and sights of this magnificent place have constantly lingered in my mind.
Wahooo! Here we Go! Now lets get er done!
