Glacier Alley

Glacier Alley 1

Beagle Channel: 9th February 2017

 When we left Ushuaia that evening, we sailed down Beagle Channel and through Glacier Alley. It gets dark late in these latitudes, so we had a good sight of the many glaciers rolling down to the sea. Unfortunately, the weather was cloudy and overcast, so they weren’t seen at their best … but, maybe, we’d been spoilt by the perfect conditions in Alaska’s Glacier Bay last year.

Julio, the Port Lecturer, was up on the bridge giving a running commentary of what could be seen over the loudspeakers … but, in many places, his words couldn’t be heard from the best photographic viewpoints.

Towards the end, the question came up … should we stay, and eat in the buffet, or go and change for dinner? The light was failing fast … so dinner won!
