Walker Bay, Livingston Island and Deception Island were the two zodiac landings for this day.
Every zodiac landing we went for a hike.
The elevation and length of the hike varied. We would usually spend two to three hous on a landing. I would be on the last zodiac return.
We saw Gentoo, Chinstrap and one lonely Macaroni Penguin. The penguins were adults waiting for their feathers to molt before going out to sea. Some were very curious and came right up to us, especially the younger less experienced birds. One came and nibbled on my glove. We were cautioned not to touch the wildlife. It was very difficult not to pick them up and cuddle them. They look less like birds when they are standing in one place until you notice the molting feathers. They were very photogenic. Their behaviours were fun to watch. I never became bored of watching their activities.
A group of elephant seals were molting on the shore of Livingston Island. A bull elephant seal was in the water. They were very interesting and really pleasant to observe.
Deception Island was interesting because of its volcanic rock, cauldera formation and whaling history. The hike up to the top was met with various forms of precipitation. Snow does not bother me as I am certain it was snowing where I am from on the same day. It was windy but not cold.
