Ship's Log Day 8, March 12, 2011

We stopped last night in a TINY village called Puerto Eden. We had to stay there for the night and wait out the aftershocks of the earthquake in Japan. Everyone was worried about Tsunamis around the world. We are pretty far from Japan but it is better to be safe than sorry.

We left this AM about 8 and motored until about 4pm. We are now stopped for a little while at the amazing Glacier Tempanos in a fiord called Seno Iceberg. BREATHTAKING! To top it all off, we had several dolphins to guide us into the fiord. They rode along the side of the boat the entire time. Beauty everywhere you turn. Surely something I will never forget. . .
I am including 2 photos today, one of the dolphins with the glacier in the background, the other is our group photo in front of the Glacier Tempanos.

I made yet more cookies today. It does not matter how many I make, they just disappear! Teresa

Glad to hear that everyone is well after the tsunami precautions. The earthquake in Japan was very devastating and they are having issues with nuclear power plants and the infrastructure is slowly coming back up. Save some cookies for the folks at home and safe travels to the next destination!
Best Regards, Lynn Blake

Yes, we were all glad to not have effects of the earthquake, but our hearts go out to the people of Japan.

@Dave-Yes! Sounds great. That is, if Robert is still talking to me... :)
