Penguins, Glaciers and a Tree: Piran Café’s Top Five Posts for February 2013
Before I turn the page from February and in case you missed something really big (!), here’s a quick review of the top-five posts on Piran Café from the past 28 days, the first full month on the road during my 14-month Round The World jaunt.
Somewhat oddly these five, based upon stats alone, almost parallel my personal top-five. That’s happened once before but I still find it strange.
5.Patagonian Trifecta (09-Feb). This was the shortest post of the month, so why summarize when I can just copy the entire thing:
Today I watched the humbling might that calves a glacier, listened to the throaty cry of a black-faced Ibis and heard Bjork in a supermarket. All firsts. I’m going to sleep well.
4.Perito Moreno Glacier Notebook (19-Feb). Summary of that trip, alluded to above, to the Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentine Patagonia. I managed to capture quite a few enormous chunks of ice splitting from the glacier. Twenty-four pics in all, including the lead at top.
2.Arbol Bandera (01-Feb). A shot of this sensational tree on the coast of the Beagle Channel that everyone needs to hug.
And the winner is:
1.Penguin Pecks (16-Feb). Penguins have really been a magnet for Piran Cafe the past month, particularly when they appear to be smooching (but are actually quarreling). Preference noted. I’ll do the best I can next month.
Wishing you all a splendid March. I’m pretty sure mine will be.
