A wonderful evening

“At last we came to anchor in Grytviken. How familiar the coast seemed as we passed down: we saw with full interest the places we struggled over after the boat journey… The old familiar smell of dead whale permeates everything. It is a strange and curious place… A wonderful evening.”

— Ernest Shackleton, 4 January 1922
