JOURNEY TO ANTARCTICA
Grab your muck boots and heavy parkas and join Bob and Linda Hanson for a photo journey to Antarctica! They traveled there in January 2018 and will try to convey the amazing beauty, splendor and vastness of that continent. It is a place like no other—with icebergs, albatross, petrels, whales, seals and penguins, penguins, penguins! They also visited several research stations including the USA’s Palmer Station.
Bob and Linda moved to Walla Walla 41 years ago. Bob was a radiologist at St Mary Medical Center for 14 years and at Good Shepherd Medical Center in Hermiston for 20 years. Linda worked at Prospect Point School in the Title 1 program working with students who needed extra help with reading. Birding was a sporadic hobby for them for many years but since retirement they have become avid birders. In the last several years they have enjoyed traveling to many countries. They are interested in history, culture, art, architecture, geology, and nature—especially BIRDS!
Before their trip to Antarctica many people asked them, “Why would you ever want to go to Antarctica?” After their presentation you will know the answer to that question.
