Its good to see all the new comers getting out and about Skiing and boarding.
It's amazing how once you've been here a year you always wait for brilliant conditions,
when your new anything will do.
Around the point we saw plenty of penguins, mostly Adelies.
Adelie penguins are truly Antarctic penguins spending most of the winter on pack ice,they also have shortest breeding season due to the harsh conditions.
They can dive over175m for food but mainly catch krill at the surface.
Average weight 5.3kg and average hight 71cms.
They're so comical to watch, but seeing them hop about on and over rocks shows what a hard life they have.
This year we have had a large number of visiting Chinstraps who have ventured further south than usual.
Chinstrap Penguins are probably the most abundant penguins in Antarctica with an estimated population of nearly eight million pairs concentrated on the Antarctic Peninsular.
Chinstraps form a strong bond,returning to the same nest site with the same partner.
Their average weight is 5kg and average hight is 71cms.
I managed to get within a meter of these Chinstraps to take this photo.
