Visiting Antarctica

Part Ten Cierva Cove

In the song 12 Days of Christmas day 10 is ten lords leaping; I present the updated lyric ten penguins leaping. The below images were taken from the balcony of the ship, a group of penguins in the water is called a Raft (a group on land is a waddle).

We didn’t make landfall for this stop, we tour a zodiac around the cove. Below is an example of how galcier ice is different from the sea ice, the glacier ice is in the middle and it looks like a dinosaur head or maybe a dragon head.

The birds in this image are rock shag birds, and are around 66-71 cm or 25 inches tall, to get a scale of the rock and snow in the back ground.

We add a new anaimal today, the sea lion, check out the tiny triangle ears.

Fun Fact, Glaicer ice is so compact due to the pressure of multiple ice layers. It creates textured bubbles and it’s so clear because the pressure pushes out air bubbles.

Net week is Mikkelsen Harbor.

I’m a world traveler and an amateur photographer, to date, I've visited seven continents and thirty-four countries. Due to bills (and a desire to eat), I am forced to work a mundane nine-to-five job to pay for my true passion. This blog is a way for me to share my crazy creative side, my travel photos with cheeky stories, travel tips, or details on how the photo was taken. Come join me as we travel the world together, without having to leave the house or get out of your PJs.
