Today the weather gods were pleased, sparing us from the driving rain and wind that can often batter Stanley. Making the most of the good weather we set out across the island to see as much as possible. The Gypsy Cove and Mount William hikes offered fantastic opportunities to take in the Falkland Island wildlife including views of Magellanic penguins, rock cormorants, and upland geese.
A visit to Long Island Farm and Stanley Growers, provided the perfect opportunity to learn more about the sheep farming heritage on the islands, the importance of peat in daily life, and the remarkable hydroponics that supplies the people of Stanley, as well as visiting tour vessels including the National Geographic Explorer.
