I will tell you about yesterday later, but right now I must tell you where we are….. they have canceled our scenic cruising Cape Horn, we are experiencing 65 knots winds across the bow of the ship, and to say we are bouncing around is putting it mildly! So we are going straight for Ushuaia, we still won’t get there until morning, but it is suppose to be a better ride, we shall see as it is already almost 3PM and it is not better.
Our trip to Stanley was great, the weather was good and the sun was shining. And the Penguins were all posing for pictures. The drive to get there was an adventure or endurance contest in its self. But I am glad we did it as it was all worth it. The biggest surprise of theFalkland Islands was how large they are. Vast to say the least. Our maps don’t really show us the size and scope of these islands or for that matter, just how large SA is! The people on the Falklands are VERY BRITISH! How the Argentines, thought they could make this part of Argentina again, meant they hadn’t met or talked to the people.
The Penguins are really special to see, the road, or lack there off is something unbelievable, even the bouncy ship today is not as bouncy as that trip was. You will just have to experience it as no way I can really give you the full understanding of it. So I will let the photos show, how special these guys are and why you would want to go there.
