New Island – Falkland Islands

Tags

,

Jan. 17th – Our ship anchored off of New Island in the Falkland Island.  We used the tender boats to shore and a small dock landing near the owners home.   It was about a mile walk to a cliff on the other side of the island to view different birds, (penguins included) nesting together.  There was another much longer walk that included up and down over two large hills with the possibility os viewing seals. I don’t know if there were seals, but I know there are no seal photos included.  This was an activity for individuals younger that me.   This was our last stop before heading home.  We arrived home on the 20th, three days later.  This was an amazing trip and we were so lucky with the weather.

 

 

 

Carcass Island – Falkland Islands

Tags

,

Jan. 16th The Island is named after a ship not because it is full of carcasses.   One person owns a good part of the Island and the rest is owned by the government (National Park).  To visit Carcass Island we used the tenders to land and walked across a narrow part of the island to a beach area that had penguins.  Then there was a 5 mile walk to the owners home and our pick up point.  A little longer walk than we expected.  The information we had indicated it was a 5 mile round trip walk,  2.5 mile one way.  A number of fitness trackers showed 5 miles one way but the wonderful views made it all worth while.
