Our afternoon shore excursion was to Cuverville Island. We sailed past even more dramatic scenery along the way.

Like the penguins, we marched along from colony to colony. The colonies stretch from the edge of the sea to much higher up the slopes. The paths used by the penguins are so deep now from the constant back and forthing to the sea that the walls of the paths almost hide the penguins' movement.
We were supposed to stay several meters from the penguins, but sometimes they sneaked up on us as they went about their business.
