    Regular netizens will remember our photos from Antarctica, Patagonia, and the Falklands from a little while ago.

    It’s been promised for a while, and it’s finally here: Peter’s expedition out into the deep South Atlantic, to remote and inhospitable South Georgia.

    This is the most extensive write-up and collection of photos that we’ve put online to date. There are over 100 photos spread across nine pages, so put some time aside and enjoy. Online now, follow the link:

    Peter and Kiwi Roa were at South Georgia for ten weeks, exploring a world of seafaring history, ruined industry, and of course largely untouched nature and wildlife. Seals, penguins, albatrosses... The island is deep within the Antarctic Convergence and at the limit of attainable expedition cruising. Peter even managed to do a little damage to the boat on both passages. Enjoy the story and photos!
