Blissed Out in Antarctica

Today was utterly amazing. I can’t even put into words how incredible everything was — the vast gravel plain below gorgeous glaciers with king penguins and fur seals literally everywhere, the rain that soaked almost everything, the wind that kicked up and really challenged our afternoon Zodiac landing on little Prion Island, and the giant wandering albatrosses nesting there literally 10 feet away from the boardwalk we climbed to reach them – also passing hundreds more fur seals, including tiny clumsy pups and males that charge but veer away if you touch their whiskers with a stick. I am completely blissed out. It’s amazing.

  1. The pictures you are painting with words are lovely. I could never have been so brave as to go there in the first place, but your love for nature just shines through. Hope you have a wonderful adventure, anxious to hear everything when you get home!

  2. I love living vicariously through your writing. OMG. What a dream what a dream! Looking forward to your next post. xo D
