the coast beckons

For much of the day we could see land/water sky to our southeast, the reflection of a darker coastal environment on the underside of the cloud base. It's tempting to make out features in the clouds but they are just...clouds, and not mountains or ocean we imagine. Tomorrow we should get our first glimpse of the coast with its convoluted shore, islands, fiords, dark ocean and icebergs. I remember it well climbing upward from the shore in 1995.

Another record day of 27.5km. Tomorrow early afternoon we should reach the turn off waypoint that marks our descent. We'll camp part way down and arrive Sunday evening, giving Fred plenty of time to film our final and perhaps most rewarding day.
