And so we awoke this morning to our daily announcement to learn that our nearest point of land was Cape Town, South Africa. Our journey from Cape to Cape may be nearing its final Cape, but the excitement at sea has not ended. Once again, we filled our day with a variety of presentations from the staff – from stories about making this crossing under sail, to learning about sustainable seafood, to live demonstrations about the mammalian dive reflex, to expert advice on telling a story with our photos of this expedition. To round off our day, we shared one final natural history recap before being treated to an extraordinary Filipino dinner – complete with a galley tour! – and a wonderful show by National Geographic Explorer’s crew band, The Spice Boys & Girls!
