      Dear Philly – patience! – the penguins are coming – only a few caught on photo so far but I think I will see many more when we get to Mawson. It’s warm inside everywhere – on the ship and in the Stations ashore. When I am outside I wear: merino wool thermal top and pants, polar fleece pants, a shirt, a thick down jacket, polar fleece gloves, and a beanie, as well as special fleecy lined snow boots. Alice

      Hello Ruby, I can hardly believe it myself. This morning the sun rose over the Antarctic continent (yes that did seem strange but it’s because Davis is in a big bay) – and what looked like low cloud hanging across the top of the harbour cliff was actually the ice shelf behind stretching high for miles. I have been performing inside on the ship – the wind outside is too bitterly cold. But today you will see me with my lovely warm down jacket outside because it was calm and sunny at Davis – very lucky! Alice
