The final day of our expedition was spent exploring the town of Stanley in the Falkland Islands. The capital of this British Overseas Territory, Stanley contains 75 percent of the population living in the Falklands. Our tours of the area were to either visit a local hydroponic farm where a lot of the produce is grown, take a tour of the city and surrounding area by bus, or take a long hike at the nearby Mount Tumbledown. Having arrived early to the dock, we were able to eat lunch ashore at some of the local establishments and spend ample time at the museum commemorating the conflict with Argentina in 1982. A peaceful and fascinating day ashore in the Falkland Islands complete with on-and-off sunshine was the perfect way to cap off this epic voyage.
