After lunch and a bit more cruising, we arrive at Grytviken: the first whaling station erected on South Georgia and the last complete one that is open to visitors. We all arrive on the beach and need to peel off our cold-weather gear -- it's actually "warm" here! We first congregate at the old cemetery where Sir Ernest Shackleton's grave is. Pauline gives a nice tribute, then we all take a small shot of whiskey to toast him.
