Where I stayed
Aboard the Polar Star
I will let the pictures tell the story.
This has to be one of my favourite photos of Jay's.
On the trip around we spotted these penguin foot prints. Jay took some great shots.
Can you see where the penguin tried to land.
What an impression it made.
Jay caught this shot as the comerant tried to come in for a landing.
After the cruising we were dropped on land to explore. I took the climb up the slope but decided not to go right to the top. I just sat down to enjoy the view and the pengins.
Back on the ship, we had a few hours of relaxation as the Polar Star relocated to Brown Bluff, our first continental landing. We arrived at the far northern end of the Antarctic Peninsula where the bluff is located about 3:15pm.
We made our way to Brown Bluff for our first landing on Antarctic Territory.
Brown Bluff had many things to look at. The Kelp Gulls were nesting on the lichen-clad boulders that dot the beach and the Gentoo Penguins were attending their young.
The fog started to roll in, but we were still able to enjoy the landing.
