Friday’s Weekly Travel Photo – Ruined Boats

Beagle Channel - Tierra del Fuego, Argentina

Located an hour’s drive outside of Ushuaia, along the Beagle Channel in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina this small ranch serves as the launching pad for zodiac trips out to a small nearby island. The island is home to a seasonal colony of some 4,000 Magellanic Penguins and approximately 50 Gentoo Penguins which live there year-round.

This photo was taken of two old boats, dragged ashore and forgotten long ago.  As you can see, the boats were well past their glory days but still managed to retrain a certain charm.   Despite a late-December visit (their summer), the weather was still fairly cool.  Though, I suppose that’s to be expected when you’re just a few hundred miles from the northern tip of Antarctica.
