Hubby had a ‘pet penguin’ when he was in the Falklands. Apparently he was extremely photogenic……. at a price!

Some great penguin pictures from Cindy Knoke on her trip.
Gratitude and Happy New Year to you from South America!
These photos are splendid, Cindy — they make me feel like the penguins are up close and personal!! I needed to see these gorgeous beach and ocean views, too, when our temps are still below zero … brr. Happy New Year!
So happy you enjoyed them Debbie and all the best to you and yours for 2018!
Precious and soul uplifting, a perfect greeting for the New Year. Thanks, and joyous days ahead for you and yours.
So happy you enjoyed them Sally & Look forward to sharing another year with you!
Look at those little honey’s !! Happy New Year Cindy! Seems to me like last year blew by. Jim and I are off to Australia soon and have booked a night tour with Penquins. I guess they march together out of the sea to their nests at night. I can’t imagine getting beautiful photo’s like yours but I’m excited to visit with them. Your trek looked a lot more secluded and personal, Bravo! Cheers my dear and here’s to adventures of the magical kind for both of us!! xo K
Oh that sounds like it will be an incredible experience. I can’t wait to read your posts about it and see your photos! <3
Happy New Year Cindy! Great post 🙂
Thanks so much & Happy New Year!
Awesome! Happy New Year!
Same to you my friend & thank you!
Lovely! Cheers to you and Happy New Year!

Happy new year to you and yours, Cindy. Thank you for all the lovely photos of our feathery friends that you post. They’re much appreciated.
Your thoughtfulness is much appreciated by me & by our feathered friends!
Ah, my dear friend. We begin another year together. And that gives me a great deal of joy.
Yes, Rebecca, you are very special to me and we are old friends now which is such a wonderful gift! Happy Everything in 2018 <3
Happy New Year Cindy.
It’s so cold all across Canada that the Calgary Zoo had to bring the penguins indoors.
WOW! They must be northern latitude birdies!
I always thought they could tolerate the cold.
Happy 2018, dear Cindy! Thank you for sharing your travel stories and delightful,beautiful photos throughout they year, year after year!
Happy travel! 💖💓
Thank you for doing the same & I look forward to spending another year with you dear friend <3
Cindy, your photos are fantastic! I think it is great that we are on the same cruise. Hope we can meet. If you have any free time in Buenos Aires, leave us a message in B339 and we can try to get together.
Aaack!!! I just got this! What a small world! We are off the ship right now, in Buenos Aires and then leaving to go further north!
We are staying at Two Hotel in Buenos Aires for a few days if you are still in town. If not, then I will just have to trust that our paths will cross again some day. Wishing you safe travels and only the best for 2018!
Unbelievable! We just left BA, heading inland. I can’t believe I figured this out on our last days together. We could have done some creative sort of joint post that would have been really fun!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, Cindy!!! And to all the feet on planet earth HAPPY FEET!!!! XO
Amen sister & I so look forward to another year with you!
Wow, Cindy, thank you for sharing these fascinating bird images.
¡Happy New Year!
Thank you more for appreciating them & cheers for the New Year!
Lovely penguins…so cute and happy! Happy New Year, Cindy!
Back to you Terri and so look forward to our shared adventures in the coming year!
What an amazing time you are having. Safe journey my friend see you later this year.
I am telling every Aussie I meet about my rendezvous with you & Jack in OZ <3
I bet there are quite a few out there too…
Me and the penguins say Happy New Year to you and all your loved ones!
Back at you sweetie with lots of love. We have traveled the world virtually together for quite some years now!
Yes we have. And may there be much more to come. We’re off to Japan and China in May-June!
I have not seen a penguin this close. The feathers look different. That is interesting. The feet look a bit intimidating at close up!!!
Happy New Year!
You should see them in the water. They fly like rockets through the waves!
They really do look like little men marching along in tuxedos. Adorable creatures. 🙂 Happy New Year.
That is a perfect description and they certainly do enjoy walking single file!
These photographs are so beautiful!

Wishing you the happiest new year ever, Cindy. Thank you so much for these wonderful, perfect photos. I don’t know how you do it but these are incredible. So close I feel like I could touch them. I hope you get many more special photos this year.
So kind of you and much appreciated too. I love capturing the beauty that is all around us. We need to see it regularly. Happy New Year <3
These photos are gorgeous, Cindy. Forgive me if you have already answered this question, but what species of penguin is this?
Thank you very much! These are Magellanic and Gentoos.
Thank you for the clarification, Cindy.
Keep them coming in the new year! 😊
This IS a happy post Cindy!! What fun! But no snow or ice. Where did you find these little guys?? As always, amazed by your photography! xo
Ah, sweet friend. Thank you! These guys were photographed at Gypsy Cove in the Falkland or Malvinas Islands (depending on your point of view) and Punto Tumbo Argentina.
A Happy New Year to you.
Visa versa 2U! <3
Wonderful series of images, Cindy, and Happy New Year – hope 2018 is a good one.

I am so looking forward to sharing another year with you! Hope 2018 treats you very well indeed <3
I love penguins! Thanks and Happy New Year! Ulrike
I <3 people who <3 penguins!
The Penguins message to you: “Thanks for chilling out with us and taking photographs of us in our tuxedos. Waddle we do without you, Cindy. Have a ‘ice day!” (◦′ᆺ‵◦) ✧♡✧*¨*•.❥ ︵ ǝʌol
Cracking up…..You are hilarious. I need you to ‘right’ my captions!
Haha…are you serious? ♡(.◜ω◝.)♡
More wonderful shots
Happy New Year! 🥂 Oh look at those chicks 😍
They are so cute they almost seem unreal!
Love those birds! Stunning photos, Cindy. Happy New Year!
Gracias Jennie y Prospero Ano Nuevo por tu!
If I could say “you’re welcome” in Spanish, I would do that. 😀
Gracias for that!
Penguins are so much fun to watch.
If you sit still for awhile, they come up and watch you, and gently start to peck at your bottons and cuffs, almost like they are saying, “Come play with us!”
My granddaughter would love that.
That would make some very sweet photos! 🐧
Once again sensational photos. I wish you a happy New Year. 🙂 Kind regards Alexander
Wishing the same for you Alexander & thank you for your thoughtfulness~
Happy New Year, Cindy!! Brilliant shots <3
Thanks my friend and all the best for 2018!
Ich wünsche Dir von Herzen Gesundheit, Freude, Friede im neuen Jahr…
Sie sind sehr nett und am meisten geschätzt auch! Glücklichstes neues Jahr für Sie!
Ha. Ha. I like your perky friends and enthusiasm. 🙂 May joy dance in your heart. Happy New Year Cindy!
Look forward to sharing another year with you Brad. Cheers to you from Argentina!
These photographs are so beautiful Cindy! Thank you so much for sharing and we wish you and your family a very happy and blessed 2018 :o) xxx
The same to you and yours and thank you so much for such kind words <3

Muchas gracias amiga mia y prospero ano neuvo <3 🐧
This is one of the best New year wishes this season. Have a wonderful year ahead Cindy. Hugs to you 💖and all those adorables💖
Oh, you touched my <3 with this thoughtful perception. Thank you! Penguins show us HOW to be happy, and for that reason alone, they are amazing~ 🐧
Happy New Year & wonderful pictures, Cindy!
Awww, so appreciated. Thank you.
Hi Cindy, is it the beach near Capetown/South Africa? Happy new year and greets from Germany, Annette 🙂
No, I just-now learned from you, to wish it was! There must be penguins there! Africa is my favorite continent after Antarctica, and I am fairly familiar with South Africa, but have never been to Capetown.
Happiest New Year to you & yours!
oh, I’m sure, you will love it. Capetown and the region around is beautiful
But where have you made this wonderful penguin-photos? 🙂
Such a cute post! Wishing you a very happy 2018! 😊
Your comment makes me smile. Wishing the same for you in 2018 <3
Lovely photos and thoughts to share with the world at the beginning of another new year full of potential and change. Happy feet and happy New Year to you Cindy!
All the best to you in 2018 and I hope our world has a better year too! <3
That’s at least two of us Cindy!
They sure looked having quite some good time! 🙂
They seem very happy if undisturbed, which now that you mention it, may apply to a lot of us! 🐧
Amazing photos! Happy New Year, may 2018 bring good things.
Visa versa 2UX2!
a big cheer to you too, Cindy, and all those adorable penguins. Looking forward to many more of your glorious photos in 2018 🙂
Happy you enjoyed and look so forward to sharing another year with you dear friend! Be well & cheers~ 🐧
Your photos always seem to touch my heart and soul…I guess it’s because of the selfless spirit, I have come to know so very well Cindy! Beautiful…shots, love you my sister and keep them coming along with those spiritual hugs that bring smiles alive!
Ah Wendell, you are an incredible soul. Knowing people like you is why blogging is such a gift in my life. Blessings to you dear friend for 2018.
you always seem to find these amazing spots Cindy! Great shots!
Thanks my friend and I look forward to seeing your photos in 2018!
Wow. Awesome pics.
Muchas gracias! 🐧
Awww. What cute, dorky yet dignified birds!
Dorky & dignified. Perfect descriptors!
I envy your amazing voyage. 🙂
Your time will come, when the kiddies have flown the nest 🐧
Perhaps one day. After college is paid for. 🙂
Yep, studying abroad, and all those misc expenses, and then there’s grad school, essentially it never ends! Just to cheer you up……..And I haven’t even gotten to the grandparent phase!
LOL It’s a privilege and an honor. And a long, winding road. 🙂
Tous mes vœux 2018 CINDY
pour moi c’est la vie
Et ne pas être dans l’oublie
L’amitié est une passion
Mais aussi une bonne solution
L’amitié fait du bien
A ceux qui en ont besoin
Lorsque qu’elle est sincère
Avec toute mon Amitié
Que je viens te souhaiter
Une merveilleuse journée ou soirée des plus agréables
Peuplée de joie et d’amitié
Being able to see these birds is so precious! Your photos are just amazing, thank you. All the best for you!
So thoughtful and so appreciated too! Thank you for stopping by!
This is such a charming post.💙
Happy new year, Cindy. 🎆
Thank you and very happy you enjoyed our southern friends! 🐧🐧
Happy new year! Wow these pictures are just stunning. What a treat to see so close up to these marvelous birds!
The 🐧🐧🐧 and I thank you and wish you a Happy New Year!
Sun bathers! -Oscar
Exactly. Smart to wear those tuxedos to avoid the harmful uv rays…..
Lovely greeting, Cindy! Happy 2018 to you, may it bring lots of new adventures!
Visa versa 2UX2! I look forward to another year together sharing our experiences <3
Awesome photos. Looks like you are having a great time.
Thank you! I had never been at sea for such and extensive time, 31 days. I really liked it, but am so glad to be back in touch and missed the lack of connectivity!
Wow, they look beautiful!! Must have been a blast!
It most certainly was! 🐧🐧
My children now adults, just watched “Happy Feet”! A favorite movie of ours. ⛄️
It is a wonderful, feel-good movie! 🐧
They are so cute ♡ ♡ It must be quite a sight when you see them in real life. Love, Isabella
They are even better in person because they interact with you! 🐧
♡ ♡ How adorable ♡ ♡
It is quite amazing~
Wow, they are so cuteeee! We’ve also been in Punta Tombo last year but it was the last day of the season and we saw not so many of them but it was very impressive.
I am so glad you experience the gorgeousness of Punto Tombo! 🐧
Very nice photos.
Sorry I accidentally deleted a comment from you. Please post in one more time. :-/
Thank you and Greetings from Alexander
Thank you Alexander & cheers back to you 🐧
Absolutely gorgeous images, Cindy❣️ Love, love the last one. 😍 Wishing you a healthy, happy 2018. x
Aww, thanks much and Happy New Year! 🐧
I want to reach out and “pet.” 😀
Yes, it was a temptation. If you are still, they come up to you, but we were instructed not to touch them! 🐧
Yeah, that is probably more respectful right? Awww. 🙂 🙂
Yes, I think so <3
Great images, Cindy! And I begin to grasp why the Brits don’t want to relinquish the Falklands. Gorgeous beaches!
Plus there are oil reserves! It’s always seems to come down to oil….
I’d forgotten the oil!
Yes, but the Argentinians haven’t, or all their dead.
It seems to me that too many human beings are motivated by profit over compassion.
It makes be sad, because compassion is what leads us to God
Absolutely adorable and colorful! I didnt know penguins had color other than black and white and perhaps yellow.
Emperor’s & Kings have orange slashes and look very elegant! 🐧
I’m sure and I’m terribly envious…
I am too. I wish I always looked kitted out for formal occasions! 😉
Ahh Cindy you are so smart and cool 🙂
Fantastic photos Cindy – always so well taken and sharp
Very kind of you Diana and much appreciated too. Thank you & cheers to you~
Bonne année et bonne santé mon amie!
Les grands esprits se rencontrent. Je vous ai juste souhaité la même chose en anglais! <3
Merci mon amie… and perhaps 2018 in France??? <3
Someday, I feel certain, you and I shall meet~
Sorry for the delay. It appears I am back online…
Nice to have you back & happy weekend!
Now to get back into harness.. Best regards!
Bonjour mon Ami ou amie CINDY
On dis que
les amis fidèles ne vous quittent jamais
Les vrais amis sont ces gens rares qui demandent de nos nouvelles
Les vrais, même s’ils sont à des kilomètres l’un de l’autre, restent toujours proches
Je te dis que Le sourire ajoute de la valeur à ton visage
Et que l’amour ajoute de la valeur à ton cœur
Le respect ajoute de la valeur à ton attitude et les amis ajoutent de la valeur à ta vie
Une des plus belles qualités d’une
véritable amitié c’est de comprendre et d’être compris
Un ami ou amie n’a aucune valeur
Je réponds que ceux-ci ne s’achètent pas
Ceux qu’on a ,on les as mérités et on pour moi une valeur inestimable
Celle du Cœur
Je souhaite à chacun la plus merveilleuse des semaines
Avec de paisibles moments , qu’il fasse beau ou pas

Amitiés et gros bisous
Merci beaucoup mon ami Bernard~

Thank you sincerely for your kind thoughtfulness & be well my friend~
Love those penguins! 🙂 🙂 I know they can migrate, but it always surprises me to see penguins outside of a cold and snowy environment. They have such personality!
Penguins are wonderful and you are right, very adaptive and can be found in many different eco-systems~
Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
Okay I am officially in love.. I want a penquin.. the weather here is perfect.. lots of rain and the occasional icy day. So cute.. I wonder if they like cuddling up on the sofa and watching old movies! Thanks Cindy Knoke for another set of amazingly stunning photos. #recommended
I am certain they would adapt and enjoy the telly, as long as you fed them lots of sardines and shrimps!
Actually they tend to projectile vomit when alarmed, so I make it a firm point never to alarm a penguin! 🐧🐧🐧
I will bear that in mind Cindy thank you for that tip… Will have to cover the sofa in plastic! ♥♥
Charming, ridiculous creatures.
They are indeed and they shoot like bullets under the water! 🐧
Looks like a fabulous time with the tuxedos Cindy. Enjoy! 🙂 xx
I did have that awkward feeling one gets when under-dressed. I so hate that…. 🐧🐧
These are so sweet, Cindy. I didn’t realise how their colours vary so much. I love the chunky little baby penguin too! 🙂
So happy you enjoyed them Judy & cheers to you Judy! 🐧

Beautiful penguins and scenery, Cindy! I have just today discovered that you were on the same cruise as another blogger that we apparently both follow, A Note From Abroad! What a coincidence, and I hope that you were able to meet. 🙂

Ahhh, so appreciated & lovely to meet you!
