- Off on our holidays!
one morning, just as the dawn was breaking,
I thought I spied some
strange chaps on the sea ice away.
28°C or something silly and the sea had frozen solid, so off we
went dragging a quarter of a ton behind us on a sledge to the
delights of Coronation Island. Ice flowers on the sea (all of
about an inch or so thick, but very hard - shhhh, don't tell BAS) and
using exactly the same design of harness that Captain Scott and
his party used in 1912, but then it was 1986.
