18 April, 1911
back at Hut point. It was heavy going from our camp to here. This sweating in such cold temperatures is a serious drawback. Found all in excellent spirits - they didn't seem to want us much! I wonder why.
They've had very bad weather since we left, with blizzards and temps down to -20. The open water is right up to the point, the wind preventing freezing completely. They are much shorter on blubber than I had expected -- they were only just keeping themselves supplied with a seal killed two days before and one as we arrived.
Back on the drippy floor tonight.
