We're back online!

We have wrapped up another season of guiding in Antarctica. After several busy months aboard an expedition ship amongst the ice, penguins and seals, it is good to return to a slower pace.

We're currently catching up with life after a brief interlude on the Atlantic coast of Patagonia - you know, the centre of hustle and bustle. Friends and fellow adventure guides Berna Urtubey, Fernando and Mariana Soria (Abramar Buceo) and Pablo Passera (Patagonian Explorers) have been showing us the best of this incredible landscape, with seemingly endless hectares of undeveloped coastline, inhabited by curious sea lions, magallenic penguins, guanacos, rheas, and the occasional herd of merino sheep. We have picked our way through the thorny bushes and wild thyme of an arid desert ranch, marvelling at giant fossils of ancient oyster shells from the time of the dinosaurs, and arrowheads from the local indigenous peoples come and gone.

This place is a reminder that our sense of time, of self-importance and of basic reality is situated and temporary. It's wonderful to get away, to breath into the space of these vast, open wild places, to gain some perspective. As we ease our way back from the vastness of Antarctica, we are again humbled by the natural landscape.

Now we're back home in beautiful Nova Scotia, dealing with stacks of unopened mail (apologies!), catching up with friends, family, updating our website, and preparing for another awesome season of Cape LaHave Adventures. We'll have stories to share from Antarctica, and photos (of course!), plus dates and details for our east coast offerings. We're so privileged to experience many coastal landscapes for work. We are also grateful to have time to experience and enjoy the places and people in between.

A belated happy 2016 to you all.
