Heavy rain and winds gusting up to 60 knots saw us having to wait out the wild weather aboard Spirit of Enderby overnight off the Auckland Islands. With things clearing up this morning we were able to land at Port Ross where we spent three tranquil hours exploring the Rata Forest as sea lions slumber in the undergrowth and Red-crowned Parakeets, Tui and Bell Bird make the most of the late season flowers. Back on board all agreed the peaceful encounter was the perfect final landing on our 'Ross Sea: In the Wake of Scott & Shackleton' voyage - in a few days we will be back in civilisation.
