Nina and Christian surf the waves

Today Nina and Christian set off on the Castillo, bound for Bellingshausen. The wind was pretty strong, verging on 35 mph in the caleta, and they went by zodiac, bouncing over the waves and drifting down the beach it looked a hair raising experience – they were very brave! Next to leave will be me and Steve in the next couple of days. The British Antarctic Survey ship the James Clark Ross (JCR) is coming to pick us up en route to the Falkland Islands via the South Shetlands, South Orkneys and South Georgia. It promises to be an interesting and exciting experience (especially for someone not familiar with ships and the Southern Ocean …)
