Much Better Day

First, my apologies for the depressing nature of the last post.  Yesterday was a much, much better day.  We were invited to go along with the seal team to do their second capture.  It was at sunset and the scenery was amazing.  When they do a capture, then always send out two Zodiacs just in case.  We got to ride along on the second one.  It was a thrill to go along and watch them do the capture.  Being out among the ice with the sunset lighting really made it spectacular.  I think even I took a few good pictures with my point-n-shoot camera that could make my dad proud.  We'll see what he thinks.  I'm sure there is room for improvement, but I think it was one of those occasions that he talks about where it is hard not to take some great pictures.  I wish he could have been there to take some shots.  We'll be back at Palmer station tonight and I'll try and get all of the pictures uploaded.

Also, I saw penguins, but they were so far away that they looked like little raisins in the high powered binoculars that I was using.  Still, when they turned towards the sun and started walking you could tell that they were waddling.
