The next leg of our adventure was again on the water as we had arranged passage on a ferry to the south through the Chilean fjords. We spent the bulk of the day following the boarding procedures.... more complicated as the ferry is a working vessel...not strictly a cruise ship. Nevertheless we used some of our time exploring the waterfront and having a nice lunch of very fresh fish.
We boarded the ship in the afternoon and found our cabin. It was small but pleasant...with bunk beds!!! It had been a very long time since we had been on a ship in bunks...and it brought back many memories as I climbed into the upper bunk and settled down to read for a bit!
We left port in a but of a rain shower on an overcast evening and hoped that this was not a weather omen for the rest of the trip.
