Final post from Antarctica?...

This will probably be my last post from Antarctica. The ship arrived yesterday with the summer crew, the first time we've seen it since June. There are a lot of people on station now, and it seems very crowded and noisy. The winterovers have been hiding out in each other's rooms, kind of shell shocked by all the excitement. The next week will be super busy as we turn the station over to the summer crew. We head back to Punta Arenas on Saturday, with a 4 or 5 day passage up the peninsula and across the Drake. Then a day of flying and I'm back home.

Thanks so much for reading, and I hope that this blog gave you a sense of what my experience was like down here. I'm sorry that my blogging tapered off towards the end, but as they say down here about the end of the season, I was getting a little toasty. I'll see you all in a little bit, and take care in the meantime...

P.s. Above is a time lapse of the ship arriving yesterday courtesy of our electrician, Charles Keating.

P.p.s. They unloaded the freshies off the ship this morning, and I had a salad and fresh fruit for the first time in over 4 months. It was beyond amazing!
