After a couple weeks in the sea ice, we returned to the open ocean. In the ice, there is a lot of noise from the ice crushing on the sides of the ship but very little rocking of the ship. Back in open water, more rocking was definitely noticeable. However, throughout our leg of the expedition, we were graced with exceptionally good weather. This night we were treated to really beautiful snow which made for quite the light show on top of the bridge.
