Well we are back in Santiago, Chile and heading home in a few short hours. Unfortunately our Antarctica trip was altered significantly. Due to weather conditions on King George Island (Antarctica), we were unable to fly there. So for 6 days we sat in Punta Arenas waiting for the weather to change. It did not and the ship was brought to a port at the bottom of Chile where we boarded and headed to the Falkland Islands. This part of the trip was wonderful and we saw 4 different species of penguins, Albatross and many other sea birds. We also saw Peale’s Dolphins. The Falkland Islands are delightful to visit and full of wonderful wildlife. I have 1000’s of images to go through so for now here is an image of 2 King Penguins being all lovey dovey! Looking forward to coming home!
We witnessed these 2 full grown males getting into a major fight at Brooks Falls up in Alaska. One of the bears sustained a nasty cut on his chest. The bears try to avoid fighting but when one does break out, usually over territory, it can be very brutal.
