Blue boat, low tide, Puerto Natales

To most travellers, Puerto Natales is little more than a stopover en route to the Torres del Paine or Tierra del Fuego and Ushuaia. But I loved it for its own sake — so much so, I even half-wondered how I might settle down there, at least for a few months. Maybe work on my shamefully poor Spanish, write, wander, photograph the endlessly fascinating shoreline.

Robin, Joan: thank you. I spent hours here, just out of town, enjoying looking for photographs or, often, just enjoying nothing in particular. Sometimes I'd find a relatively sheltered spot and brew up a cafe con leche and drink it slowly, watching the birds and trying to understand where I was. I think this conveys something of the feel, and I'm glad you appreciate it.
