Dec. 25: Cuverville Island, Antarctica

We arrived at Cuverville Island and to our surprise Santa Claus was greeting the Seabourn Quest and wished all of us a Merry Christmas


                                                                                Cuverville Island is home to a Gentoo penguin colony


It was warm on Cuverville Island and I took my fur hat off which I bought in Buenos Aires before my first trip to Antarctica in 1977.  A skua came and inspected it: it looks furry – maybe I can eat it.  I quickly grabbed it and my hat was safe.
