Inca Tern~


Meet the Inca Tern!

Even the females wear their mustaches with pride.

Inca Tern’s occupy the territories of Chile and Peru once occupied by the Incas, hence their name.

They are considered one of the world’s most unique bird species.

In the 1850’s there were millions of them.

Their population is now estimated at 150,000.

I had no idea there would be such limited access to wifi on this trip, but I have never taken an entirely ship based trip before. Maritime wifi is extremely slow and expensive preventing me from responding to comments or commenting on your posts. Shore visits are intensive with limited time.

I so miss your comments and talking with you. I miss the feeling of traveling together virtually.

We are heading further south now towards Torres de Paine, Tierra del Fuego, and Cape Horn.

Our adult children have joined us for the holidays.

In about two weeks, we will return to terra firma, and I so look forward to catching up with you!

Until then, the gorgeous Inca Terns and I wish you Feliz Navidad y Prospero Ano Nuevo!
