210 and 211 travel south, 211 heavy with water but we see the ice starting to form in the sea.

First Sighting of land.. that welcoming gray smudge across the horizon that at first you think is a storm layer.. but any one who has been here before knows is the deceptive sight of land... that your not about to land on just yet.
