Day Eighty (22nd Nov) – Reserva Faunistica Peninsula Valdes

25 11 2010

Right, today we took a short-ish 1.5 hour bus ride to the local national park, Reserva Faunistica Peninsula Valdes. We arrived to a small town called Puerto Piramides, human population 250, whale population 400-600! Have you guessed it?….we went whale watching!

It was a lovely clear warm sunny day, as all the days seem to be here. Out on a calm sea we were fortunate to see close to two dozen Southern Right whales of various ages. However it was the playful adolescent whales that provided the most entertainment by spraying us with water from their blow holes.

Other than a little sun bathing and food, that was all we had time for before the bus back to Puerto Madryn.
