we sailed northwards through the interconnecting waterways of Chile's Patagonian
Channels, we were constantly aware of the majesty of the raw forces of nature.
Together with our friends on the schooner Siome, we marveled at the
immense power of a massive wall of ice cracking and thundering down into the
pristine waters below the wall of
icy blue glacier that towered up above. We snuck into secure little nooks when
the wind began to blow with such force that entire banks of trees would be
uprooted and flung aside on any exposed pieces of coast. We cooked succulent
shellfish in pools of naturally boiling water, and collected the sweetest rain
huge waterfalls, or melted chunks of glacier ice on the days when the sun shone
bright and clear. In short, we felt really privileged to be able to experience
the wilds of Patagonia in all of her moods.
