A boat trip for a few hours along the Beagle Channel wondering what Fitzroy and Darwin would have made of it 180 or so years ago….

These nuns.... ehh.. penguins are so funny :)) I guess they are discussing about the temperature of the water!

Super captures love those Penguins, where I used to live in a place called Paglesham in Essex, were the remains of Darwins boat the Beagle, a Scottish professor did years of work researching this fact, books have been written, and underwater scans were taken all so very interesting for us locals.

Rodney is a friend of ours ... we owned a home in Paglesham for some years where The Beagle spent her last days.
Your manchots are adorable as is the baby sea pup with its mother.
Another wonderful set ... thanks for sharing.
