Li Ling – Feb 3:

After the seal tagging attempt, the ship followed the eastern side of the Bear Peninsula along a channel packed with sea ice. We maneuvered as far south as we could, until we eventually came to a dead end and could not go further at around mid-night. We did a few CTD stations along the way.

The view along the Bear Peninsula was stunning! Almost everyone awake came outside to enjoy the scenery!
