Now this is a place I would like to visit - one day maybe!

Great set of pictures.

Penguins are one of the reasons we should visit the Falkland Islands, Sallie! Obviously, not the first reason because from this post there is a lot of history here.

Looks and sounds like a lovely trip. It's somewhere I've long wanted to visit, and the Penguins are just fab!

The Penguins are beautiful. Falkland war - yes, I remember that thing too. Thanks for sharing your nice photos for all of us to see. Be well!

Wow, those penguin photos are amazing! The whalebone arch is a unique sight. Glad you had a great visit!

I would be over the moon to see a Penquin or a Puffin. They are two that seem too cute to exist in nature. Thanks for sharing your travel pics. I want to go! lol


I have missed many of your blog posts because I didn't get notificationsfor some reason. You have travelled to some interesting countries and I'm enjoying the catch up. Those penguins seen in the wild are delightful.


Hello, Sallie,
Beautiful photos of your visit to the Falkland Islands.
I love the cute penguins, adorable photos.
The beach photo looks beautiful, I would love a walk on that beach.
Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a great weekend. PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.


Your post is very interesting, I remember the Falkland war because Prince Andrew played the soldier there, and all Newspapers were full of his heroic achievements. The Penguins are so cute ! They look different as the once I am used to see, or maybe they are babies ! I wished I could still travel like I used to do, I have hope because my health is much better and I feel nearly "normal" (if that is possible)


What fun! I've never seen penguins in the wild.


I'm so glad that walking on the beach is prohibited. Wonderful photos of the day.

What an incredible place! Seems like often, places that are not on your radar and not popular tourist destinations, are the most interesting and memorable.

Oh my gosh...PENGUINS....I would love to see them ...thank you for your note about the scooter...Things have really changed for me mobility wise in the past year....love..Michelle

How fun to experience a wee bit of England in the Falkland Islands. I'd choose the penguin tour, too. They are such jolly birds, and how wonderful for you to see them in their natural habitat.


seems like the adventure of a lifetime, i enjoy reading about your travels!! you have shared some really awesome photographs, it seems you were lucky to capture the penguins. the third one looks like he is celebrating your arrival. bus tours are great, i am sure you know that, i think you miss a lot when you don't take them!!

we voted for our favorite peeps, in three categories, so there are winners but i am not sure about prizes!!

What a wonderful trip...wish I could go there.
I adore penguins and would have taken a gazillion photos of those cute guys.


I have just been scrolling through all the posts that I have missed and it has been wonderful following your trip around Europe and South America. I'm amazed at how resilient you two are. Well done. It has been fun travelling virtually with you. The only way that I travel these days.For some reason I can't get your blog to update properly on my sidebar So I had missed some posts. All caught up now.


I didn't know there was an air force base there still. Wonder what type of penguins they are?

Such a wonderful trip!! I am also glad that they closed the beach for the penguins' safety. So wonderful you got to see them in their natural habitat. The third one is posing for your photo.



I would love to see it but you know probably won't. Those penguins are cool.


Sallie - a wonderful post about a place I am unlikely to ever visit - so thanks for taking us there! I especially liked the penguins!


Wonderful photos and I'm glad you enjoyed the trip.


Absolutly a place I would vissit


Sallie, your post makes me feel like I am right there by your side. Great photos and fun to read. Thank you! Such cute penguins! Lots of interesting sights. Fabulous trip!


Yes, I remembering this war on the Falklands. Of course. But it is more. It's a wonderful landscape. And I'm glad reading about your journey, dear Sallie. Thank you for sharing.

...Sallie, this is a beautiful destination, thanks for taking me along to see the sights.

As a birder, I would dearly love to visit the Falkland Islands, but a I doubt that will ever happen now. Thanks for letting me come along with you, Sallie.


Beautiful captures and narration.

What an incredible adventure!
The Falkland Islands seem like such a unique blend of natural beauty and historical significance.
Love the charming British influences scattered throughout the town. And those penguins! They're adorable!

Stunning photos, Sallie!

Wow! Thank you for showing us this famous place that most of us will never see! The penguins! The history! Really fascinating and I enjoyed seeing the smaller craft that ferried you to sure. A very snug and capable boat! Aloha from Honolulu my dear

Again, your post is fascinating and makes it clear what a wonderful adventure you had on your ship. You didn’t say how you spent the time on the long no-shore days, or if the crossing was smooth or rough. I’m curious about every detail.
best, mae at maefood.blogspot.com


Hello Sallie,
The Falkland islands does look like a great place to visit.
the beach is gorgeous. I am glad the penguins are safe there, they are so darn cute. Take care, have a great week ahead.
