Since we weren't able to land here a couple days ago due to the high winds and swells, we came back today to experience this spectacular location. I was up at 3:45am, dressed, had a bite to eat, and was out in the Zodiac by 4:30. The sun had just risen up over a mountain and was casting a beautiful light over the beach and the surrounding mountains. Plus, we were greeted by our friends, the king penguins, as well as the elephant seals.
