This was the very first stop on our Antarctic Tour! We had a beautiful hike through Saunders Island. There was a beautiful area full of nesting birds and penguins. We were SUPER close to all the animals, what a site!!!
I continued on a hike on my own to the other side of the island and I saw some sheep passing through. It was beautiful to see such a bright sun on a clear day. At the end of the hike, there was an SUV that was selling random souvenirs. It was by locals that made money by selling to tourists that visit the island.
At West Point I saw penguins for the first time, hanging out by the beach. I also saw a tiny colony of king penguins that were taking care of their young. I also took a photo with whale bones. Such a great start to the trip!
Have passport, will travel.
