Elephant Seals are the World’s Largest Carnivore – they can reach sizes up to 11,000 – 12,000 pounds

Weight gain from cruise – also rapid and sizeable

Books I read on the cruise – only one, but it was good.

I recommend the Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, by Rachel Joyce

Blog posts written on cruise – none! Too busy making like an Elephant Seal – eating and sleeping

**Note – Elephant Seal photo is not my own, but I’ve lost the origin so can’t credit it here
