After lunch on Feb. 5, we made a stop in Jason Harbour. We hiked
over grass covered hills through low lying tussock grass.
It was difficult walking as elephant seals had created muddy wallows
between the mounds which were hard to see.
And fur seals were nesting in the tussock grass mounds, waiting
to pop up their heads, give a growl and bare their teeth if we got
too close. We learned to stand our ground, clap our hands and yell
back so they would back off.
were surprised to run across a herd of reindeer in amongst the fur
seals. And there was a new King Penguin colony on the beach with
some protecting eggs on their feet.
