Cape Kekurny and Tikhirka Bay

Saturday, September 6, 2014

In the morning of this ‘at-sea day’ we enjoyed yet another of Prof. Ludmilla Selezneva’s lectures: ‘The Opening of Siberia and Kamchatka’. That afternoon it was two photography workshops with Raul.

That evening we had invited Ludmilla and Martin Enckell to dinner in our residence, which made for interesting and fun conversation.

That morning we went zodiac cruising at Cape Kekurny again searching for wildlife. We found Steller sea lions, sea otters, Spotted seals, gulls, Steller sea eagle, plenty to keep us occupied.

In the afternoon the ship repositioned and anchored off Tikhirka Bay where we had the opportunity to go ashore for various walks. At 17:00 hours it was time for ‘Cocktails and Canapés’ on the beach to the tunes of The Fabulous Fossils.
