Moving down the Ross Sea – 28th Febru­a­ry, 2020

The wea­ther in the Ter­ra Nova Bay area is not exact­ly gre­at today. No chan­ce to make a lan­ding on Inex­pres­si­ble Island, whe­re Scott’s nort­hern par­ty spend a mise­ra­ble win­ter in 1912 and whe­re Chi­na is cur­r­ent­ly pre­pa­ring for buil­ding ano­t­her sta­ti­on (gre­at! Ano­t­her sta­ti­on! Ant­arc­ti­ca needs more sta­ti­ons! Chi­na only has four sta­ti­ons, they do need ano­t­her one! And the­re are only three sta­ti­ons so far in Ter­ra Nova Bay, the­re has to be a fourth one! For­gi­ve me for get­ting slight­ly sar­castic here).

We pass the Ita­li­an Mario Zuc­chel­li Base and later we get a glim­pse of the Ger­man Gond­wa­na Base. Then we find a litt­le bay that pro­vi­des enough shel­ter for a lovely litt­le Zodiac crui­se, with ple­nty of Wed­dell seals, Adé­lie pen­gu­ins and some good sce­ne­ry. The view is clea­ring up towards the evening.
