Playing in the Snow
When we first arrived in Antarctica, the ship announced that there'd be the equivalent of a Polar Bear swim, a Penguin Swim, I guess. Melissa, of course, was determined to do this. I'm still shaking off the last of my cold, so decided I'd take pictures instead. We assumed that the water in the outdoor pool would be actual Antarctic water, but steam rose from its surface, and it was quite warm. I guess no one wanted the shock to anyone's body to be too great. It was cold out on deck, though, although not very cold for us tough Canadians.
Ah, my maternal heart swells to show you this image of my little snow angel.
