After that, Hugh drove us around to some other small inlets in search of wildlife. We did find a King penguin with a bit of blood on his chest standing on shore -- Hugh tells us the most likely culprit was a leopard seal, but we saw no sign of it (too bad, but they are more common in the Antarctic and less common up here). Hugh did give us a mini lecture on the geology of the area because it does look very different from the other regions we've visited. This part of South Georgia is remnant of Gondwanaland. (I'm sorry I don't remember everything he told us, just the Gondwanaland part.)
