Back on the mainland

The alternative ferry to travel back to the mainland leaves from Porvenir. It was delayed due to the wind (surprise, surprise) but after a short wait we had a pleasant crossing, arriving in Punta Arenas after a 2 hour trip.

After saying we are now heading north, Tom and Jen and the two of us actually headed south out of Punta Arenas, down along a very windy coast to the end of the road – the furthest you can go on mainland South America. This also entailed an 8km hike along a beach to a lighthouse – sounds easy, except during the 4 hours it took us, we had gale force winds, a smattering of snow, rain and hail and to top it off, some sunshine – Melbourne has nothing on this place in terms of changes of weather!
