Chatham Islands, NZ

Very brief hello from way out in the ocean!  First land visit to these islands was interesting. 600 inhabitants, beautiful flowers, sheep, cows, fishing boats, and warm sunshine.


Yesterday a Zodiac trip around the Antipodes Islands - first viewing of penguins and seals, awesome scenery.



Orion anchored at Chatham Islands


More later from this trip of a lifetime!
