Bea­gle Chan­nel – 13 March 2018

This is not the first time that „Bea­gle Chan­nel“ is the head­line of an ent­ry of this blog. So far it meant tra­vel­ling from Ushua­ia to the Dra­ke-Pas­sa­ge (or back). This time, not so.

How many times did I see the­se beau­tiful moun­ta­ins fur­ther west in the Bea­gle Chan­nel wit­hout ever get­ting the­re. So, today!

We set sail in Puer­to Wil­liams and enjoy­ed the com­pa­ny of many Black-bro­wed alba­tros­ses, shags and even a few dol­phins. South of Ushua­ia a Hump­back wha­le waved us off with his flu­ke. Very fri­end­ly.

The rest of the day? A scenic dream made of sky and sea, islands and fjords. Moun­ta­ins and clouds were mir­rored on the water. New islands, new views mile after mile. A dream coming true.

Late in the evening, the anchor fell in Cale­ta Olla (Cale­ta seems to be the word for litt­le, well-shel­te­red natu­ral har­bours) under a beau­tiful sou­thern sky of stars. No arti­fi­ci­al light any­whe­re around us! The Mil­ky way, Magel­la­nic cloud, the Sou­thern cross … so beau­tiful that a small group of us even went ashore to put the tri­pods up in dark­ness. Well, ama­zing how quick­ly the clouds can cover the sky down here … any­way, it was still a nice way to finish the day.
