Franz Josef Land & Svalbard - 2018

There was much cumbersome interplay among this largest species of the pinnipeds and also much vocalizing. As the light became a little dimmer because the clouds were closing the curtain on us, we lingered on longer and enjoyed the evening walrus show.

Day 6 – Zeigler Island

Our landing for this morning was on Zeigler Island at Cape Brice but it almost did not happen because of shifting ice moving into the shore. And it was cut short for the same reason, even necessitating a change in the embarkation point different from our landing site. What was supposed to be a choice between a long walk (3-5 hours) and a medium walk (1-2 hours) was made easy when the long walk had to be cancelled due to the shifting ice.
