A strong wind was blowing sheets of snow, and the sea was full of whitecaps but we loaded the Zodiacs and experienced what the explorers of years ago must have felt. That would be wet and cold! A roller coaster ride in the bay between Boothe Island and Pleneau Island. Didn't hear the story of a Leopard seal puncturing 2 of the Zodiacs the previous trip until I was at the airport.
