My day with the penguins; plus other pictures from Patagonia

Magdelena Island is home to one of the largest Magellanic Penguin colonies in Chile and it's where I got to spend my morning today. To get there, one takes the ferry at 8am from Terminal Tres Puentes on the far East side of town. There's no need to reserve tickets, just take a taxi to the terminal in the morning.

Photos from the island:












All photos above were taken using Alex's camera. This was my first and only opportunity to take it out for a test drive before the big voyage to Antarctica. It definitely took some getting used to and I'm glad I got some of the awkwardness out now before the trip.
