The fool wonders, the wise man asks.


Even in summer, there remains a bit of chill to that water this far south. This does not deter the intrepid though, and we only turned back when we started bumping into icebergs…

I think it is a bit warmer than down at my favorite beach.

I dipped my toes in the Gulf of Mexico last weekend when we were in Galveston, Texas. It was warmer than I expected. We could mix your iceberg in our warm gulf. That would be nice. :)

The cold water is not visible. It is alovely summer shot and a real family one. Very nice!
And lucky you living so close to the ocean.

No doubt you turned back after the iceberg encounter!

«Louis» was happy to see you had stopped by San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.

You didn't make it into the Atlantic? Did you see the iceberg that is supposed to be bigger that Tasmania?

Kris said...

Steffe, could be. We’ve had lots of rain over the last week though.

Thiên, now I have Glen Campbell stuck in my head! Did you hear the sea waves crashing?

Carola, believe me that it was chilly! Video to come!

Louis la Vache, we waved to the penguins that were catching a lift and carried on in true Tasmanian spirit.

Roddy, as a sailor, I should expect you to know that the Atlantic is on the other side of Antarctica.

It's all relative. You go one way to get to us first, the other way to get to it. It's a big bit of ice whichever way you go.

Kris said...

We generally don't swim that far out.

Roddy said...

You didn't tell me that.
