Our adventure started in Camarones, a wonderful little village by the Natural Reserve Cabo Dos Bahias. During our trip, we visited the lighthouse at Isla Leone, stopped at Caleta Horno, a place famous for a mutiny happened on a Spanish Galleon in the 1500’s. We re-supplied in Bahia Bustamante, known for its seaweed industry and bird watching. Wildlife was abundant - Crested Ducks, Commerson and Peale’s Dolphins, Rock/Imperial Cormorans, Steamer Ducks, White Egrets, Sea Lions, Antarctic Skua, Snowy Sheathbills, Common/Blackish/Magellanic Oystercatchers, Coscoroba/Black Neck Swan, Dolphin/Kelp Gulls, Terns, Flamingos, and more. We ate mussels and lapas fresh from the sea. We swam in the cold water of the Atlantic. On our 11th day, in San Jorge Gulf, we had a close-call as I fought my way back to shore in 60 km/h winds. That day, on land, I clocked 94 km/h wind speed. Unfortunately we had to forfeit our last 30 km because of the weather.

    I love the wild. I love being in it and feeling it. I love the humbling experience of feeling powerless towards it.
