Today we visited Port Lockroy, a British research station built in 1944 as part of the secret Operation Tabarin, a large-scale effort to occupy the Antarctic Peninsula during World War II. Restored in 1996 by Antarctic Heritage Trust, these buildings stand as a testament to a dramatic time and provide insight into what it would have been like to live and work at a mid-century Antarctic base. In the afternoon, we celebrated the end of our time on the Antarctic Peninsula with a barbeque and polar plunge.
