This morning we arrived at Half Moon Island and awoke with the excitement of finally getting off the boat and being the first group to go kayaking. Too soon, the wind picked up, white caps appeared everywhere and we had to make our way back to the ship and cut our adventure a bit short. Later some of the team decided that a polar dip was a good idea. The rest of us thought they were crazy but cheered them on with cameras at the ready. “It was an invigorating experience that ‘literally took my breath away’ but one that could not be missed,” said Lara.
