2009 Antarctic Cruise - Falkland Islands

We made several landings in the Falkland Islands.


West Point Island

West Point Island is owned by Roddy and Lily Napier. Sadly, Roddy was sick and he and his wife were in the hospital in Stanley. The caretakers helped us get to the wildlife and back to their house for tea.

Stanley

Stanley is the capital of the Falkland Islands. Even though we took the Zodiacs from the ship, we had a dry landing at a dock where we disembarked and removed some of our warmer clothing. The temperature was in the 50's (Fahrenheit) with some wind.
