Usually all this sea between us and the island 2-3 miles distant and about 30 miles long is on the move and more commonly rough than not. Now though it is all perfectly flat and calm and covered with a delicate but solid ice layer maybe an inch thick (2.5cm) that you can easily poke a finger through that covers tens, probably hundreds of square miles. That's the great thing about the temperature falling below freezing, the whole world changes in such an impressive way.

Antarctica and allowed them to be made into a commemorative cd and then
placed here on the web.
