Today, on the Bottom Bus, we reached as far South as we will everprobably go ever ever ever in the world ever.
And it was kind of the same as everywhere else!! Nothing too different or dramtic. No Polar Bears or enormous icebergs.
But there were some penguins - and a very large Sea-lion. We watched a very rare group of Yellow Eyed Penguins come out of the water at the end of the day and waddle off to sleep in the bushes by the sea. Watching them hop up and down over the rocks bought a littlegrin to my face, and to make the situation more humorous, we all had to stay perfectly still so not to alarm them - a group of adults standing like statues on some rocky outcrop trying to take photographs of these tiny penguins without moving would definitely have been a sight to behold. I can only imaginr what the little yellow eyed fellas must think.
Before this we had followed a beach track to find a giant sea-lion lazing on the beach, yawning andf flapping its flippers.It didn't do much, but we had to stay back here too, because apparently if they are disturbed they willcome at you at quite some speed. That a creature that large can reach 25km an hour I find very hard to believe, but it was definitely something I was not planning to risk, so we took our snaps from a safe distance, beforeleaving it be wallowing in the sand.
So, after doing my David Attenborough bit today, we can only go North from here tomorrow, and explor some more of the worlds most fantastic scenery.
Oh, and did I mention we walked up the worlds steepest street yesterday.
It doesn't get much more exciting than that!
The Adventure continues...
