Jon Seddon's Photos - Antarctica - Rothera - Lagoon

Lagoon is a small island in Ryder Bay, to the north of Rothera. The island is used for some biological work and also for recreational trips to allow staff to get away from Rothera for a night or two. There's a small hut there that's used for accomodation. In early 2004 I spent a couple of weekends there.

View Lagoon on a map.
