Sun Shines Everywhere 8541

Amy Patick and Ginny Watson recently returned from a 10-day cruise to Antarctica where they stopped at Port Lockroy and read the Alameda Sun to local penguins. A natural harbor in the Palmer Archipelago, Port Lockroy was discovered in 1904 by Jean-Baptiste Charcot. The harbor was used for whaling from 1911 to 1931, a British military station during World War II, then as a British research station until 1962. In 1996, the Port Lockroy base was renovated and is now a museum and post office. Half the island is open to tourists, while the other half is reserved for penguins.
