Dec 07, 2017 - National Geographic Orion
Today, we awoke aboard the National Geographic Orion as the ship was rounding King Edward Point in Cumberland Bay, with our destination, Grytviken, in sight. Grytviken is notable for at least two reasons: it was the site of the first whaling station built in South Georgia; and, it is the final resting sight of “the Boss” – Sir Ernest Shackleton. We were fortunate enough to have the full day to explore the whaling station, the museum and the hills behind Grytviken.
