All Aboard!

Our arrival on the RRS Ernest Shackleton

This is a good view of the bridge.

Nick, Karl, and I joined the RRS Ernest Shackleton on Saturday morning. We will be leaving Cape Town in a few hours, headed south! If we can make 10 knots for a little while, we could reach Halley early, around December 22. But, it all depends on the weather and ice conditions. We'll try to keep you posted. There is internet on the ship, but it is quite slow so we probably won't be posting many pictures for a few weeks.
