It was an amazing trip, and impossible to really explain how vast, overwhelming, and incredibly beautiful Antarctica is!!! So, I broke it down into the geology/physical aspect, the penguins (because who doesn't love penguins?), and whales and seals.
And who knew that yawning leopard seals are cute???
Oh my goodness! Your pictures are so beautiful. Thank you for giving us such great descriptions of Antarctica. I learned so much, and am printing off your blogs so that I can read them over again. 32 days ago
These were my after-work treat -- and they are wonderful!! I did not expect Antarctica to be so beautiful and at least 3 of your 4 days were sunny with brilliant blues!! The penguins are marvellous, of course -- and the whales -- and the leopard seals too!! And all the information you took and "filtered" (baleen style!!) for our benefit!! What a terrific trip, something you will never forget . . . and you have the best pictures too!! 35 days ago
Thank you for these wonderful pictures of your personal experience traveling to Antarctica. You explanation of the history of how the continent was formed is so educational. I remember reading "Endurance:Shackleton's Expedition to Antarctica". 36 days ago
Oh WOW!!! As fabulous as those photos are I can sense that they don't do the experience justice. Antarctica seems to be an experience unto itself! The penguins would have delighted me to no end. What an experience you are having!!! Thank you for sharing it with us and giving us a sense of it. 37 days ago
