We saw some avalanches and also a couple of ice chunks calving off the nearby glacier into the water. Of course, there were also penguins, and as our passengers had already seen them before, the unstoppable impulse to take bizillions of photos is beginning to wane, and they are actually starting to look at these funny birds.
On the route from Neko Harbour to Port Lockroy, we cruised the scenic Neumayer Channel, which today showed in all its splendor as we had blue skies and flat, mirror-like waters.
We landed in Port Lockroy in the afternoon, and our passengers were fascinated by in the small museum showing how life was in a British Antarctic research station in the 1940s; they also proved to be rather interested in the museum gift shop spending tonnes of their hard-earned cash on very nice remembrances of their trip! The proceeds from the shop are all ploughed back into the running of the base and the restoration of other British bases around the Antarctic. All this is administered by the United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust.
