Jan.2/15



On the road again......I find Willys voice in my head often these days😊

We have just left a small corky village called Puerto Pirmades, on the Pennisula Valdes, which is an animal reserve for multiple creatures!

We arrived here on Jan.2 at about 6:30pm there is only one camp ground in the village to plug into.....it is like nowhere I've ever experienced, we are crammed in here like sardines. I feel like a through back from the 60's a true hippie😊😊



Jan.3/15



We woke in Puerto Pirmades and began to explore, this is a huge whale watching village for the " Right Whale" season ( Sept-Dec.) we missed that but decided to jump back into the RV and drive to Punta Norte the most northern point on the peninsula which was 80km from the village of PP there is a huge colony of Sea Lions and Elephant seals......so fun to watch them playing in the water and lounging in the sun....they had just given birth to their babies cubs a few weeks ago. During high tide in mid-February is when the Orca Whales come here to feast on the seals. We continued south about 40km driving by a gigantic salt flat 42m below sea level ( one of the SA lowest ....... to Punta Carta which is a protected world heritage site for the Magellanic Penguin, it was spectacular to see them in their own habitat.

I could have spent hours watching them, they too had just had their babies.

It's hard to describe the sense of freedom I feel. Since we hit the Patagonia you can literally see for miles and miles watching critters roam free.

We had a great seafood dinner, we are all loving the RABAS ( calamari )

Sean's a little more adventurous.

Love and miss everyone xoxoxo
