Christmas Message From Antarctica


Hope you are all having a wonderful day and enjoying yourselves. We had our Christmas last Saturday as today the first ship arrives with the parts for the new Halley Station. The picture above shows us in our chef's whites just before th meal was served. It's going to be all go from now on as the base shifts to 24hr working. However, the driving crew had a bit of time on their hands to make the world's biggest snow sofa.

Which was then used for the Halley Christmas Card which is sent to all the other bases in Antactica

I'm in the second row, 6th from the left, doing my best orange penguin impersonation....I assumed it would be cold out you can see from the shirtsleeved ones....I was wrong!

Love to you all.
