Godthul and Stromness, South Georgia, 12/1/2021, National Geographic Resolution

  • Aboard the National Geographic Resolution
  • Antarctica

In the afternoon we repositioned to Stromness, the site of an old whaling station. Here, some of us Zodiac cruised while many kayaked amongst the abundant fur seals. We experienced pretty much every behavior possible as they were particularly feisty today. As the afternoon progressed, a fleet of alien spaceship lenticular clouds developed and as the sunset and the alpenglow developed, we enjoyed one of the most spectacular evenings possible.

The magic and wonder of South Georgia continued today. We awoke to glassy seas as we approached Godthul, a beautiful bay that made for a perfect morning spot. Here, some of us Zodiac cruised, while others hiked to a lake and beyond. All enjoyed abundant wildlife and stunning views. Fur seals and elephant seals lined the beaches while pintail ducks and South Georgia pipits abounded.
