And I'm off!

Bye bye friends and family!! The next time we speak I'll be able to tell you just what a penguin colony smells like!
Here are some photos of birds I hope to see. A couple of Albatrosses (you may have noticed my interest in them....) and the cutest penguin species, in my humble opinion, the Chinstrap. OK, maybe the Adelie is cuter. You can vote.

I'm just unbelievably thrilled to be going to this part of the world. And I'm so very tired of speculating on what it might be like!! I just want to find out!! I'll tell you all about it when I return on November 19.........

I vote for the Chinstrap, all the way. How cute! How "Happy Feet," or whatever that Disney flick was called....

Bon Voyage! Passez une bonne journee!

See you in a coupla weeks!
