Another early morning. This morning is sunny and "warm" (4C), but the wind is up around a constant 30 knots with occasional gusts, so the temp is actually really cold and the ocean is rough. We get a little wet on the Zodiac ride in, but not too bad. There are tons of king penguins lining the shore and making their way inland.

Salisbury Plain's king penguin population isn't as numerous as St. Andrews, but it's well-known because of the possible views (photo opportunities) of the colony. The views just from the beach are magnificent -- lots of mountains, a couple glaciers, and islands off the coast.
