    Hi kev! On Friday night we had Hannah, Hilary, Luka and Neve round. They were all well. Luka and Neve were playing with cylums and they liked the fireworks! Good to hear that your making progress. How did you get on with the seals? Hope you didn’t kill them and eat them? Its been lovely and sunny this weekend. A bit mild but warm! Keep going and remember keep walking!!!!

    Henry and Mark, I’m glad to hear both teams are now well underway and out on your own. I can understand how devastating Lennie’s departure must have been for you all, but most of all for Lennie himself.
    Mark, from the Scott Base webcam it looks like a lovely day for an ice shelf picnic – minus 3 C and gentle breeze, but just keep out of those big slots!
    All the best
    Peter Otway
