Dear Inc: That is one of the interesting aspects of this journey – we have seen almost no traditional landmarks. In fact, until I saw Tierra del Fuego on January 17, I had seen no land since November 8 when we passed Cape Finisterre at the northwest corner of Spain! However, perhaps there is the notion of seamarks, and these would be more subtle. The stars of the southern hemisphere; the albatross; the relentless gale after gale after gale of the Southern Ocean; and the cold, cold, cold of the Southern Ocean. The all define where we have been just as landmarks do on land.
