Stormy swells, sea ice and rain
Caused us to detour again
The Brazilian base
Was a haunted place
Where whale bones, among wreckage, were lain
Whale vertebrae make good chairs
The following day we set foot on the Antarctic Peninsula at Esperanza (Hope Bay), which is a base that the Argentines operate year round in an attempt to "colonize" Antarctica. They get married and have babies there. Yes, they do.
At Esperanza we arrived
To Adelies in 4-wheel drive
A hike near Mt. Flora
On the peninsula
Then a passage, through pack ice, survived
Icebergs are neat
Jellyfish? What? Why? How?
Really cool erratic with a fault perpendicular to bedding
Totally freaking awesome plant fossils that I didn't take for fear of Argentinian jail
Adelie penguins refusing to give me a hug
