If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Thanks everyone for your kind words! We only get the 1st morning that far, and we still have another four and half days to go.

After the BBQ, at 2:30PM we headed for the Zodiac cruising and landing.

Then we left the seal, some whale and heading for the land.
After two and half days on the sea, we set foot on the land finally.

More fabulous images there, what an experience. I am jealous of few things in life but of this I am, in a "good on ya!" totally non negative way. Like others, I look forward to more more more as you are offering a great documentary here. Thanks so much for sharing this and allowing me to virtually experience this with you.
