We didn't only touch the island but on the next day - today - had a landing after waking up, clothing and breakfast.

Groussac Emergency Hut
The refugee was built in 1955 by diligent Argentine hands. The cross you can see later has been erected for the memory of those three scientists who tried to reach the refugee from the Vernadsky Research Base in 1982 over the sea ice - but finally didn't make it.

If I'm not mistaken, here's up somewhere the memorial plaque of the Fourth French Antarctic Expedition in 1908-190 and led by Jean-Baptiste Charcot.
