He's making a list . . .


Did you think Santa was hard at work
at the North Pole?  Me, too—but
apparently he prefers to do his list-checking
(twice) at the local Starbucks, with a
venti latte by his side.

angel on my shoulder


Buenos Aires is full of fabulous
murals like this one.

inSPIREd Sunday


This is the Whaler's Church, in Grytviken,
in South Georgia.  Grytviken was
a whaling station that has now been shut
down.  There's a museum here, but,
really, the whole town is a museum.

The Weekend in Black and White


This king penguin was actually one of many
I saw on a stretch of beach in
South Georgia, the Antarctic Islands due east
of the Antarctic Peninsula.  There were
also fur seals—but those we avoided (pretty
nasty and faster than you'd think).

Skywatch Friday


Everything was over-the-top in South Georgia:
the landscape, the wildlife, even the clouds.

Don't even think about it


This is the old whaling station of 

Strömness, on South Georgia.


Even the penguins have enough sense 
to 
keep (relatively) clear of this place.

ABC Wednesday—V is for "vain"


This proud chinstrap penguin seems to be
saying, "look at me. Look at me."
Actually, I think that's exactly what this
behavior means—he's lookin' for
love in all the right places.
