Something about the Falklands and it's wildness and the rock formations and the sea, seem to really warm my soul and I wish I would have had more time to explore and talk to the people who live here more. Here's a few more shots I took while standing pretty well in one spot! Beautiful!!!
Look at the wind blowing the tussock.
A look out (people near top left
Christ Church Cathedral
Adjacent to the cathedral is the Whalebone Arch, constructed in 1933 from the jawbones of two blue whales to commemorate the centenary of continuous British administration in the Falklands.
These warning signs are here and there, all over the area by and up to Gypsy Cove. Also on the bus ride back to the Jetty, there where many memorials built along the side of the road to lives lost either from the war, or people killed by land mines.
Ross Road which I think is the Main Street. I was searching for the post office to buy some pretty Falkland Island stamps for souvenirs The Red Roof place on the right was FULL of nothing but Penguin souvenirs, however it had a almost a ship full of people shopping in there, and I couldn't stand trying to see what they had, so left. Sorry everyone....no souvenir's!!
Th Post Office was CLOSED!!!
So, I took pictures of the stamps for sale, posted behind a glass display that hung outside.
Outhouses???? Just joking!!!!Description below this picture!
Hey!!! I know these people! It's Gunther and Illa from our ship!!! Hi ya guys!!!
I saw this just as I was behind the line on the Jetty waiting for another Tender to take us back to the Amsterdam.
The Tenders or the people getting off the ship at ports are always greeted by the photographer and this guy was a cheesy looking pirate, ready to take our pictures!
Goodbye Falklands, I enjoyed my visit very much!!
Arriving back "HOME".
There waiting and anxious to hear what I had seen, what I learned and happy to see me was my wonderful Tom!
Continued tomorrow with more pictures and stories from around the ship as we have two more interesting days at sea.
