Early this morning, National Geographic Resolution crossed the Antarctic Circle, marking a wondrous maritime feat. Many awoke early to witness the crossing. National Geographic Resolution continued southward to our morning destination of Detaille Island. While some guests explored by Zodiac, many went ashore to visit a famous hut used by British scientists from 1956-1959. The hut has been preserved since its use in the 1950s, serving as a wonderful time capsule that allows glimpses into what living in a research hut looked like back then.

In the afternoon, we enjoyed another sunny bluebird day. Upon encountering a good area of sea ice, National Geographic Resolution navigated into the ice, allowing us to walk on the frozen ocean and take in the icy sights.
