That’s a lot of beer

We were at sea again today.  It feels like we have been at sea forever.  Which is a little true since our last trip off of the boat was Monday at 4 AM.  Almost three days ago.

We passed the largest iceberg in the world – C19.  It broke off the continent 10 years ago and has been floating ever since.  It is currently 17 miles long and is so big that it controls it’s own weather.

The light reflecting off of the berg causes a much brighter sky then the dark and gloomy storm clouds on the other side of the ship.

The staff members so graciously translated the size of the berg into cans of beer and the number was in the billions.
