The next stop was Seno Garibaldi. On the way there, making our way west up the Beagle channel we passed glaciers with cascading meltwater falls. Note the condor mid photo.

At the end of Garibaldi was an impressive glacier which had the reputation of calving actively in the summer

In the morning we are surprised by a cruise ship that passes our anchorage. Note the lenticular cloud above it.
