Description (see definition): Cove bounded by ice cliffs which lies at the foot of Remus Glacier in the SE corner of Neny Fjord, along the W coast of Graham Land. First roughly surveyed in 1936 by the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) under Rymill. It was resurveyed in 1940-41 by members of the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS), and so named by them because on first arrival it seemed providential that a site for the East Base was found so quickly and easily. It was soon determined, however, that the cove did not provide a suitable site for the base.
