Falkland Wildlife Tour

Darwin, East FalklandDarwin, East Falkland (Mary Curry)
We arrived at Mt Pleasant airport and were met by Graham, the manager of Darwin House. The route to Darwin is a mix of paved and gravel roads. We had some lunch and then went exploring.
Graham drove us to Bobie, the southernmost suspension bridge in the world. It is a crumbling, stately structure that is no longer safe for foot or car traffic. From the bridge, we walked back toward Goose Green. This was the site of a famous battle during the 1982 Conflict in which 114 civilians were held captive in the community center for 29 days. After that, we followed the coast back to Darwin House were we had an amazing beef cobbler and fresh salad with feta and peaches. Dessert was a heavenly chocolate cream tart.
