Trails, Boats, and Seals

One day during SPIDER’s flight, Anne and I walked down to Hut Point to check out the arriving icebreaker. We encountered some seals down there, which also break the ice—by chomping holes. They make great huffing noises as the surface and breathe, which made them easy and fun to spot. I liked this so much that I decided to go for a hike every morning, after each night of watching SPIDER. Following the icebreaker, a series of other boats arrived. The main resupply ship arrived just before my return from the South Pole, as did some whales.
