|Early morning: the end of the voyage through Tierra del Fuego and Staten Island. From the window of our cabin,|
we could see the lights of Ushuaia, Argentina, from which we were to fly to Buenos Aires and then home.
|From my last moments on the best viewpoint on the National Geographic Explorer.|
|In the harbor, we got close-up looks at some of the pelagic birds that|
had been flying around the ship as we traveled. This is the
southern giant petrel. For Len's complete bird photos, link HERE.
|In the US we have painted cows, pigs, etc.|
Here evidently they did the same trick with penguins.
It's the end of the world, so they say
And soon we're all going away
So as we say goodbye, a
Last look at Ushuaia
And a hope that we'll come back some day.
Tom also says my blog is "probably the most complete documentation of a cruise in the area since Darwin and Fitzroy" -- though I doubt that, I appreciate the sentiment and hope that I haven't overdone it. This is, however, the end!
