Lazy Antarctic Afternoons...ANTARCTICA (12 March)


This is where we docked in the morning...Port Lockroy (that's our ship)


The afternoon was not so muchy birdy, apart from of course the ever-present Gentoo Penguins that are infinitely amusing in their antics on the ice, but it was a great day to take a hike up to a near ridge and survey the breathtaking scenery of the White Continent below and observe an old British research station sat alongside a rival Argentine one...

Oh my my, this is great stuff! I'm so glad I happened upon your blog. When I was a small child I was introduced to a Navy man who had been to Antarctica and showed me pictures of the "White Continent." I was flabbergasted by the thought of visiting and working in such a place. I shall follow your blog from here on out.
Please consider contributing to World Bird Wednesday. It would be an honor to have you there!
