Penguins at Cape Royds!

Adelie Penguin the Rookery

Finally did get to see a whole slew of penguins and seals. We took a unofficial expedition up to Cape Royds here near McMurdo and got to see scores of Adelies. In addition, we got to see Scott's Terra Nova hut at Cape Evans, and of course Shackleton's Hut at Cape Royds. I will post more pics and videos when I can.

I had Caperoyds once and I couldn't sit down comfortably for about a week.
