Got back this morning and, of course, the first thing I wanted to do was upload all the fantastic photos I took in Antarctica! So for you, my viewing public, following are some choice moments to enjoy. It's a little jumpy....I just have so much to share!! Unlike previous posts these are all MY photos and videos. I love my camera!
I had a great time sliding down the hill on Deception Island. Did this about 10 times and my butt still hurts.
I did see all the Albatrosses I wanted to, including the Wandering Albatross. I also saw all the penguins, Chinstrap, Gentoo and Adelie, and I think the Adelie wins. We only saw two Adelies so perhaps that made it more special......
I spent time on the stern watching the birds following our ship. When the first Wandering Albatross showed up I was totally excited.....10-11 foot wingspan!
We spent two days crossing the Drake in open water and then we got close enough to Antarctica to see our first iceberg. It was ghostly.
There was a contest as to exactly what day and time we'd see our first one and the winner received a tasty bottle of champagne. Nope, wasn't me.
Well, that's going to have to hold you for awhile......this uploading is exhausting. But stay tuned for more fun videos and photos!
