Not So Wordless Wednesday!! January 6, 2021

 Lovely penguins near Punta Arena
We were here in early 2008. 
Here is what I wrote then:

We docked at Punta Arena, which is one of the two most southern towns in the world.
Took one of my favorite tours, we went out to the summer penguins! Saw some emu’s along the way, wild! Got to the penguins after about one hour. We walked out to the area where they gather, on a wooden path. There is a colony of about 10,000. CUTE,CUTE! They are about 1 ½ feet tall, and there were some older babies that were losing their fluff. Lots of noise, and it’s so different, because they nest in the seagrass, not snow and ice! There are little trails through the grass and they mate and have their young in burrows. Lots of humping! They follow the leader in little groups as they come out of the grassy area to the water. Waddle, waddle!


  1. I would love to see the cute penguins and wild emu in person and up close. I always thought penguins only live in snow and ice places.

  2. What a fun place to see in person. Penguins are such interesting creatures.

  3. Lots of humping - that made me chuckle.

  4. I would have loved to see these cutie pies. You two sure have traveled to a lot of wonderful places.
