Canal Ballenero, Whalers’ Strait, was just one of many channels that we are passing these days. Canal O’Brien, Bahia Desolada … you name it. Unknown places, names that sound like adventure.
We have to make some miles now. We have got 25 days altogether, a lot of time, but also a total of more than 2000 miles. Stunning scenery all the way around us. The weather lives up to its Patagonian reputation of being wet and windy, but still, we get our lovely moments of sun and patches of blue sky, stunning light surrounded by a scenery that might remind one of Greenland or Norway, but without losing its very own character.

The anchor goes down in yet another beautiful Caleta, one of these little natural harbours which were obviously made for ships like hours. The shorelines are fastened to wind-beaten trees, giving us a calm night despite the strong wind.
