Petermann Island and Port Lockroy

Petermann Island was named after a german geographer and is situated south of the Lemaire Channel. Two great walks bring you either to iceberg alley or closer to the cormorants, gentoos and adelie penguins. The weather was beautiful once again- it is actually quite amazing how lucky we are on this trip! And now we are still at Port Lockroy where we have a former british base that is today a museum- and the southernmost post office! A double landing was possible and we could also see the whale bones at Jougla Point. In addition there was a chinese fashion shooting ashore- quite a sight to have Miss China 2006 wearing a red evening gown accompanied with rubber boots...
