Punta Arenas, Chile

Dec 1st, 2019 5:15 am approaching Punta Arenas, Chile. The largest city in southern Patagonia, is located on the Magellan Strait.
Ferdinand Magellan sailed from Spain around South America, discovering what is now known as the Strait of Magellan, in October 1521, and across the Pacific. Though he was killed in the Philippines, one of his ships continued westward to Spain, accomplishing the first circumnavigation of Earth. The voyage was successfully terminated by the Basque navigator, Juan Sebastian del Cano.
The ferry that will take our bus to Riesco Island and our Patagonian Farm Experience. An all day visit to Estancia Fitz Roy, a 100 yr old farm that has been converted into a living museum and agro-tourism business.
Rounded up, now they get sheared.

Chemicals added to the water to kill/prevent ticks which would be scratched a lot and ruin the wool. They need the head submerged to cover it with the chemicals too.

Upland Geese showing beautiful top wing. I know this isn’t a good photo but I also saw a couple of Black Neck Swans (not posted terrible photo) that are only in the Patagonian South America region. Not seeing any whales, so I gotta go with what I get 🙂
Tiny, tiny lighthouse and even tinier boat!
Magnificent Magellan Strait, sail away.
It was raining all morning and the clouds were covering the Amalia Glacier, this is just as the fog was lifting. The blue is the glacier. It’s all part of our rainy experience. Amazingly beautiful!
