... It was a great morning.
We went across the road and got some food (tom and i shared fish empanadas) and then realised we still had half a day to kill, and almost 300km of free mileage to use. The group concensus was to head to the punta tombo penguin colony about another hours drive south. So we got back in the car and set off once again!
