I had a good first day. My rig is indeed heavy, but i hope to be ok with it.
It rained for half of the day. I had not bothered with suntan cream, but have now burned myself. Damn that missing ozone layer. Lesson learned, cream up whatever the weather.
The wind was hard behind me this afternoon, which made for good progress. It was a hilly day though. I did 100k and averaged about 18kph. So i guess my average speed is going to be about 10 miles per hour ...
I took another slightly longer boat trip in the Beagle Channel, this time traveling farther east to Martillos lsand with a penguin rookery. Again we passed the Isla de los Pajaros (Brid's island), Isla de los Lobos (Sea Lion's island) and the Faro Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse.

We saw wildlife (see photos), of sealions and a penguin-like animal called a
comorant. There was also a Lighthouse. Indigenous people once lived here, but ...
... cattle anymore but just sit back and cream it in via tourism. Its ok for some.
We took a dingy style boat over from the mainland to island Martillo where there is a rookery of thousands of magellanic penguins and hundreds for gentoo penguins. You can walk around the island in relative freedom but obviously cant go trampling on their nesting sites. As they are now used to 20 people visiting their island every day and trying to take pictures of them they are quite happy ...
