Penguins, Ice, and Camping

IMG_0013

The afternoon was spent checking out the penguins and then Zodiac touring the ice. There were so many crab eater seals on the fast ice (sea ice attached to the shore) it was amazing. We hiked to see the views of Mount Francais and viewed it thru the old observatory window.

We were up with the sunrise to hear a huge boom and saw this huge ice burg split in half and then half of it flipped over in the water.

    Hi Sara & Daniel:

    OMG these photos are absolutely stunning, I can imagine how breathtaking this all is in real life. Isn’t the world and nature amazing. You two are experiencing so much more than anyone could imagine. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

    Love Julie & Tony

    Got to say thank you for some amazing pictures, its nice to see visual blogs rather than mountains of text.

    We would love to attempt something like this but my wife absolutely adores seals and I doubt she would ever get back on the boat 🙂
