Fortuna Bay, South Georgia

Day 7: January 19th

"During lunch the ship moved into Fortuna Bay, where Shackleton came down after crossing the island.

We landed on a very long gravel beach. It was covered in areas by hundreds of King Penguins, a few Elephant Seals, numerous Fur Seals, and a few Gentoo Penguins.

There were Reindeer wandering above the beach. They have been introduced on several occasions since the early 1900's."
