20080129 Tuesday Day 14 Half Moon Island, Deception Island

Morning landing was Half Moon Island where it was dominated by the chipstrap penguins. There was also an empty Argentina research base. Among the penguins there was one seemingly lost macaroni penguin, it seemed to be all by itself.

The ship made a skillful navigation into the centre of the Deception Island, it had an old broken whaling station due to mud slide and valcono activities. There was a chance to swim in the Antarctic water at Deception Island because of the thermal water, but the wind and rain made it very unpleasant so I didn't do it in the end.

For no apparent reason, I had a headache and didn't go to dinner.
