Today was another early day! Breakfast at 6:00, zodiacs to shore at 6:45. Fortuna Bay opens to Fortuna Glacier on one side, and Konig Glacier at the very end. Where we landed, we were met by only a few elephant seals and more fur seals. I started my morning here by walking towards the Fortuna Glacier side of the bay. I passed by several groups of king penguins, some pretty waterfalls and streams from the upper regions, and a small gentoo penguin colony way up on a hill. It was very pleasant so long as I kept my distance from the fur seals -- they snort a bit when you get too close.
