Antarctica Adventure - 2002

S OUTH G EORGIA I SLAND Days 14 16 Solid ground beneath our feet and blue sky overhead—how could that ever be bested?! How about by temperatures in the 50s and sunshine to boot? Mountains in the background, topped with snow, glaciers both marine and hanging, waterfalls sparkling in the sunlight, green, marvelous green, growing things everywhere we looked, real sand and rock beaches, with a turquoise sea all around. We arrived at Grytviken early in the morning and looked out at the amazing scene before us. A large and quiet bay with the little town encircling it. However, the grim reminders of the whaling days, that ended here in the l960s, were the leaning, crumbling and rusting buildings gradually being erased byMother Nature.
