Seeing penguins in the enclosure of a zoo or refuge is nothing compared to seeing them in their natural habitat.  Otway Sound is located in another section of Chilean Patagonia and is home to a large population of Magellan penguins.  They are so entertaining to watch as they waddle from their burrows to the beach – such clumsy looking animals.  It took us an hour’s drive to get to and from the viewpoint but it was well worth it even though I had been there before.  This time my photos will NOT get deleted!!
