Antarctic Penguins

Antarctica! The 7th continent. And MY 7th continent as well. As some may know I was planning a trip to the windiest, coldest, highest and driest continent, on February 5th. Well that didn’t quite work for me,I couldn’t wait!So I searched out a “last minute” deal and found one. The trip was incredible. We had a smooth cruise through the Beagle Channel followed by two days of hell through the Drake Passage after rounding Cape horn. We spent a day at the Shetland Islands before making our way to the continent. These penguins were the main attraction.
