Fortuna Bay

A good landing. From the southern end of the beach, the more adventurous walked across the ridge to Stromness, following Shackleton's route. The less adventurous were landed at the other end of the beach, and once past the fur seals, enjoyed an easy stroll across the plain among the king penguins and reindeer.
