In January 2015 we set off on a cruise to Antarctica.
Here are images of the Antarctic Peninsula.
My apologies for confusing folk who thought I was in the Antarctic now.
It is too dark and too cold at this time of the year.
It has been snowing in Queenstown and ice-clad roadside rock faces were perfect stimuli for me to go back and review our icy Antarctic journey in January.
As we sailed through the Neumayer Channel (64degS) the cloud lifted and glaciated mountains surrounded us.
The air was punctuated by the occasional bark of an iceberg calving off the glaciers.
Their smell and their calls fill the air.
A group of four young folk are taking care of the Port Lockroy store, Post office and museum.
We get to return to the comforts of our cruise ship.
