The ship blew its horn at midnight and really scared the penguins (haha poor guys, just trying to have a quiet evening meal). Then I got up this morning and went to Neumayer! Very cool place, especially from an engineering perspective. And then later when we got back to the ship I hung around on the sea ice and an emperor penguin passed about 50ft from me!!!!!!! :-D

Very exciting day! I am tired now haha :) :) :)
