Punta Tumbo

We went ashore in Puerto Madryn - a major city....

... hopped on a bus.....

.... and rode more or less forever through the Patagonian plain

We knew somthign was up when we spotted llamas...

  

and finally Penguins - MANY penguins!

  

  

This bridge theoretically gives the penguins a free passage up hill -
some travel considerable distances to establish a burrow.
The penguins however seem pretty oblivious to the humans.....


A typical penguin nest - a shallow burrow actually

    

At the time we were there the young were almost full grown but had not fledged yet

These pairs were having a dispute over rights to this burrow
