Our goal may have been achieved, but the journey is far from finished. From Ushuaia, we still need to get back to Canmore AB.
Sadly, we turned north and began our return journey. Being so near the winter solstice, we finally realized how far south we were. From morning till nightfall the sun never reached above our windshield. We continued on, until we found our next little paradise.
This was a spot Teresita told us was a must see so we decided to check it out and were not disappointed.
This is Puerto Madryn. In the months of Dec-Apr penguins frequent this area, along with seals, sealions and orca whales. Unfortunately, due to our timing, we weren't able to see any of these. Luckily, however, our timing was bang on for the whale season here. At times, we could see over 40 in the water at once.
Shona takin in the view.
The million dollar whale-tail shot.
What did one gansta whale say to the other when he got too close?
Why you gotta be all up in my KRILL??????
This turned out to be a huge highlight on our trip up to Buenos Aires before we get ready to ship the van to North America.
