Today, we awoke at King George Island, where we delighted in views of Base Presidente Frei, the Chilean station, and Bellingshausen, the Russian station. Bellingshausen Station houses Trinity Church, one of eight churches in Antarctica and the permanently staffed, southernmost Eastern Orthodox church in the world. It was truly delightful to see such an amazing place.

In the afternoon, we explored Penguin Island, where we had the opportunity to get up close with some of the penguins of Antarctica, along with other legendary animals that inhabit this icy continent.
