This year marks 150 years of the 'Origin of Species', by Charles Darwin, which is why stories like a school in Texas wanting to start giving out Masters of Science in Creationism disturbs me oh so much. This year also saw Darwin's 200th birthday, and you really wonder if he's turning around down there seeing what is going on in parts of the US.

Three containers all fit together in a neat little stack........very compact and fits in my lunch cooler nicely, plus being stainless steel cleans up easily.

My garden, though the picture of neglect right now, I love that I can grow a few things..........these are the papaya leaves.....
A good crunchy salad with lots of extras like bean sprouts, pineapple and bacon sausages, pumpkin seeds, cucumber and peppers.....
Fresh fresh fruit........pineapple is my favorite fruit, mixed in with some gorgeous smelling strawberries......

Sad to say goodbye to people (though as it's 7am i'm suspecting there won't be too many people around to say goodbye to, and most are on different flights tomorrow and the day after), it's been a fun one.
Describing the Megacores, one of my main jobs on deck (writing down which ones worked, what they looked like, any biology in there, and issues, measuring how much mud). Yes, the box i'm sat on does say "I love Mud"....
My and Andrews feet after sorting through a trawl....

So now we're in the Drake, rolling around like crazy, so few faces at breakfast this morning........
The Nathaniel B Palmer, pretty cool seeing it from this angle. Stian was in the zodiac....

So it goes......Crunching through the ice at night. The ice got too thick at one point and we ended up going back and around a different route. The Gould is not an icebreaker, it is just ice-strengthened, so it cannot break through thick ice.
The team hauling in the zodiacs to James Ross Island. I got the supervising position, as i'm still unable to lift with my wrist.
Forming the chain and tossing the bags into the zodiacs...
