        ... but this didn’t pan out as the town was heaving with people (we discovered it was a bank holiday weekend) and lots of smart looking Fiat 600’s (some club event). Hotels were fully booked and the campsite full of Fiat owners, so after visiting the supermarket we headed back out of town to, yes you have guessed the YPF petrol station. Next morning we headed to the Peninsula.

        ... We quickly stopped the truck and ran out to watch them. There were three orcas that swam into a channel, likely looking for food. We were told that at this time of the year, orcas will come up on the beach and grab the seal pups. The seals were higher on the shore here so we didn't get to see this naturally occurring event.

We drove for a good hour along this 60 kilometer stretch dirt road with a couple of concerning, however navigable spots, until we arrived to a clearly impassable section which had been thoroughly flooded. Our van would have NO WAY made it through this virtual river. After an hour of driving on on this road, only twenty kilometers from the coast, so close to the largest penguin colony in South America, yet so far, we ...
