Gentoo Penguins on the Falkland Islands.
It's been a few weeks now since my 4x4 adventure to see the penguins on the Falkland Islands.
It was a great day. Two groups of Gentoos in the morning followed by a visit to the Rockhoppers in the afternoon.
Along the way we got to see the sights of the Falkland Island. Wide-open spaces with room to breathe and think and be quiet amongst my thoughts.
I am grateful for the chance to visit there and see the Penguins and to experience the quiet. The wide, empty quiet away from the hurried pace of life here. Whether one participates in it or not it is still around us. There is no real escape from it at home.
It's easy to forget about the life we know here when you get to see sights such as these.
I am grateful for the chance to be there and take this photo of the Gentoos.
I will always carry the memory with me. Even as experiences fade from active memory they are still available and can be called up in those times when the pace is too fast, the assaults on the senses become too much, and when the demands on time are overwhelming. I can become still and remember.
