Today we planned to sleep in, but instead woke to the slamming of our "magic drawers", which seemed very eager for us to join the day and explore their contents. This of course prompted a look out the window, and the seas were much rougher than yesterday. We ended up putting a chair and trash can against the dresser to stop the slamming.
During breakfast there were many crashing dishes etc, and walking was tough. The others at the table helped anchor our trays so that they didn't run away from us. With the 20 foot seas and 50+ knot winds, they ended up shooing all the nuts (did they leave their common sense at home??!) inside from the decks, and blocked the exits to keep us indoors. Believe it or not, the crew all swear up and down that crossing Drake's Passage on the last trip was much worse, and that this really wasn't bad. Drake's Passage is the convergance of the Atlantic, Pacific and Antarctic oceans.
Once we rounded Cape Horn at 11:20 or so, things improved considerably. We're headed off to afternoon tea, and then to the trivia quiz, so I'll write more later...
Heard later in the day that one window was broken by the waves.
BTW - Just figured that we don't have access to upload photos on board, so that will have to wait until Ushuaia at least.
