Our first penguin rookery.

Today in the morning we landed on Danco Island. The island is a home to almost 1000 pairs of Gentoo penguins. First time during the cruise we were able to see how penguin nest is constructed and how penguin nestlings look like!
 Afternoon we were in Neko Harbour. It was our first, but not last, landing on Antarctic Continent itself. Also here  we meet with few hundred of Gentoo penguins. Most of us went high up, in to the view point, to see beautiful glacier scenery of Antvord Bay.
But the day is not over yet. After dinner kayak trip and camping on the Antarctic Continent will take place.
