We began our day with a windy morning on a beautiful sandy beach. Saunders Island is full of wildlife. The tussock grass blew in circles as black-browed albatross chicks rested in their sheltered ravine. Magellanic oystercatchers went about their business in an atypically quiet way, while Magellanic penguins tended to their young near the entrances of their burrows. Gentoo penguin chicks tirelessly chased their parents in hopes of another feeding. The sun was shining and the wild world went about its daily adventures while we watched, smiling.
