KEP (South Georgia)

KEP from a high point. The base has only about 9 people in the winter. The museum is only open for the summer season when most of the cruise liners enter the bay.

The old whaling factory and museum. The whaling station was built around the start of the 20th century.

Gentoo penguins on the crest of the hill.

A young elephant seal with the big googly eyes

Shackleton's grave

King penguins enjoying the view on the shore of the island

A BBQ for all, the Halley chef Antony taking control of the situation. Suckling pig on the menu.

Time to leave. Next stop Halley. No more greenery for a while.
