So today is my birthday. Irene sang me "Happy Birthday" as soon as we were up. Ted included it in the morning announcements. I had many well-wishes at breakfast. When I got back to my cabin, the door was decorated with balloons by the "St. Louis 6" - the group of ladies that came here together and celebrated a couple of their bdays earlier in the trip. And I know that at dinner, I'll be sung to and given an ice cream cake and an autographed book about the Antarctic region.

Definitely not a bad way to spend my day :-)

The weather was nice and sunny out on deck and we did have some seabirds following us, so I took a couple photos.

The ship started to get a bit more rocky as the day wore on. By dinner, I was starting to feel not super great, but I made it through and was indeed sung to and given an ice cream cake and a book. After dinner, there was a short video shown, made by one of our passengers on an earlier one of of our trips. But after that video, I was having trouble holding myself together, so I went back to my cabin and laid on the bed, trying not to get sick. Not a great way to end a nice day, but I'll survive.
