July 28, Gullybukta, N79°33' W10°55'
The morning expedition was entirely by Zodiac, with a "haulout" of walruses as the main attraction. We would see more of these in the coming days.
In this next photo you can tell that the glacier Gullybreen is receding as there are no icebergs in the water.
July 28, Smeerenburg, N79°43' W11°0'
Smeerenburg means "Blubbertown", and was the base of Dutch whaling in the 17th century. Pretty much all that's left are the remains of large circular ovens where whale blubber was melted down into oil.
The structure in the next picture was meant as a navigational aid. We were instructed not to walk past it - when I forgot this and started to do so, one of the bear-watch guards ushered me back.
