Archi­pe­la­go de los Cho­nos – 31 March 2018

Good to be in shel­te­red coas­tal waters again! The surf on the outer coast was very impres­si­ve, not a good place to run aground, as count­less ships did trough the cen­tu­ries.

The sea got com­ple­te­ly calm during the morning, the water was like a mir­ror again mid-day.

Nevertheless, pen­gu­ins are swim­ming around in con­si­derable num­bers and fur­ther inland, the­re is one of the big­gest non-polar ice-caps of the Earth. May­be it is real­ly just the wea­ther of today …
