Goodbye Lyubov Orlova

Such a sad end for such a lovely lady (boat). Named after a Soviet actress, The Lyubov Orlova, which I spent two weeks aboard in 2007 on a trip to the South Shetland Islands and Antarctica, is either still adrift or sitting on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.

I saw many great birds from her decks as we sailed the Drake passage to the Antarctic Peninsula. Wandering, Royal and Light-mantled Sooty Albatross, hundreds of Wilson's Stormies, Prions, Giant Petrels and Sooty Shearwaters. May she rest in peace where ever she is.
