So we were riding back to Madrona last evening around dusk when something fun happened. In that evenlight Tamsyn and Griffyn were in the bow and and a couple of odd birds appeared about fifteen feet to our left. They were Blue Penguins!
Very cool. The kids were jazzed, and we were surprised too. The blue's are the smallest penguin, but very penguiny to look at. It's been a long time since I've been around penguins in the Antarctic so this was a special treat for me - a kind of reunion.
All is well.
