After a foggy morning in
the weather improved as the Ocean Nova cruised into Fortuna Bay.
Several dozen of us were dropped off here to re-enact the last part
of the Ernest Shackleton walk. After he had traversed 800 miles of open
ocean from Elephant Island, Shackleton landed at Cape Rosa and started hiking
to the whaling station of Stromness, passing through Fortuna Bay where
we would start our ground adventure.
