First landing

Booth island, my first steps onto the finest continent of them all! That’s just my opinion but it makes me smile to write that.

We had our first “mountaineering” day, this enabled Jason to assess people’s ability and provide rope training for the crevasse riddled walk over a glacier programmed in a few days. It went well some basic knots, everyone did well as we headed up the snow slope to “The Port Charcot” memorial. For some people on this expedition it was their first time seeing snow, a strange concept to our wintry isles but fascinating all the same. Needless to say everyone enjoyed themselves and a friendly multi national snowball fight broke out. A joyous day.
