Island full of penguins


Antarctica and Argentina

12/6/2021: We arrived in the morning at this island out in the middle of a bunch of icebergs. Despite what I would call nearly glassy conditions, the kayaking expedition was cancelled. And, shore landings were cancelled. This was a recurring pattern of cancelling shore excursions due to "weather conditions". Instead, we drove around in a zodiac watching penguins.
