Port Lockroy
Antarctic Dream

Brief historyBrief history (Mike Hoyer)
We overnighted at Port Lockroy, a British station (with a post office). I met someone who was able to tell me about people I'd first met in the arctic in 1966 and where they were now. (It was at the Devon Island Research Station - AINA - as a young volunteer, that I'd met Alan Gill and Fritz Koerner, glaciologists) It was a most picturesque spot, but at the time it was snowing fiercely.

Finally, at Enterprise Bay, we stopped for a zodiac trip. We saw a whaling wreck, leopard seals and pups, and plenty of antarctic birds. Our engine died and we had to be towed back to the Antarctic Dream.
