Narrative

Group of rocks lying in South Bay just N of Miers Bluff, Livingston Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The name Sallys Cove was applied to a feature shown lying southward of Johnsons Dock by James Weddell in 1820-23. There is no true cove in this area, but these rocks may have formed one arm of what appeared to him to be a cove. The name Sally Rocks was given by the UK-APC in 1961 in order to preserve Weddell's name in the vicinity.
