I know you guys probably want to know more about their trip, so I let Mommy download some of her pictures onto my blog -- for this week only! I mean, I can't let adorable pictures of penguins and fur seals surpass my own cute photos . . .
So, my parents flew from Alaska to Santiago, Chile, where they spent the day touring the city. From Chile, they took a plane to Ushuaia, Argentina (the southern-most city in the world). They boarded their boat -- the Explorer II -- and began their expedition. They visited the Falkland Islands and then South Georgia the first 10 days:
Daddy in Port Stanley. Those are four whale bones behind him. Daddy is a history buff and wanted to visit the sites that were made famous during the Falkland War
For you ornithologists, and I quote Mommy, " . . . I dunno, this is some kind of duck . . ."
This brown furball is a penguin chick. He is almost ready to molt and acquire his adult tuxedo suit
These are adult King penguins (second in size only to the Emperor penguins)

More pics to come . . .
