2016 Lindblad National Geographic Explorer Expedition to South Georgia & Falkland Islands
I was fortunately able to go on an awesome expedition cruise to the South Georgia & Falkland
Islands from Oct 26th-Nov 9th, 2016. This was
Lindblad's National Geographic Explorer
- sweet ship!
I shot 5,000 pictures so it will take a while to process 'em all.
In 1997, my wife Wendy had gone (solo) wayyyy down South on the "original" Explorer. In 2009,
I did a similar
triangle trip of the Falklands, South Georgia, and Antarctica.
It was really cool to visit this amazing part of the world and this time
do it with my spouse!

March of the Penguins ... and more Penguins, Penguins, Penguins!
This was paradise for bird lovers!

Gorgeous view from the National Geographic Explorer's bridge as we enter Stromness Harbor
JanetM took this very creative picture at Stromness - a toast to Shackleton! ;-)
