Pinguinos! Yeah!

Hi! I am brand new! Just looking around!
Here are more awesome penguin pics and videos. Enjoy!

Also note, the Emperor Penguin you will see was the absolutely only Emperor Penguin there: Yes, lost, lonely and searching for his antarctic tribe!
We took a boat (similar to these
boats) run by a family (a group of brothers,
with cookies baked by their mom - yum).
We were accompanied by 22 other
penguin-loving souls.
 















The  folks in this region
proudly display the
Patagonian flag beside
the flag of Chile. People
definitely feel pride in their
heritage.



















This lighthouse graces Isla
Magdalena. Here, the sky always
seems to be dramatic.
The Island is home to penguins and
their seagul friends. Respect from
humans  is required -- and expected. See the lovely Inga
as a faint green dot in the middle ground.













The only Emperor Penguin here.
Check out the video below.






And here they are! Watching them swim under water
was a true delight. Fast is an understatement!
