Cathy visits her favorite place (John Power)
A perfect day,weather-wise,for our trip to Tierra del Fuego National Park. We were picked up early by guide, Freddie, from Canal tours. What a great guide! His English was far superior to our Spanish. He was very knowledgeable about the area's ecology. We followed trail up to "Freddie's Balcony", a great spot for a coffee and soup break. Great views of islands and harbor. We walked down to shore line and camp for bar-b-que lunch of chicken, kabobs and red wine (love those wines of Argentina, especially the Malbecs). After lunch, into small boats to paddle around small islands where we were apparantly the afternoon's entertainment for a local sea lion who followed us closely. Returned via Rte.#3 which is the famous Pan-American highway. Dinner at high-end resturant,great fish dinner. After dinner, drinks at Lola's. Cathy was the victim of an equipment malfunction and was locked in bathroom stall. She didn't panic but was forced to crawl out of the stall. John laughed all the way home. Cathy didn't.
