19 April, 1911
At Hut Point. The sea has frozen over 4.5 inches, which tells you how quickly it will go if conditions are right. Spotted three seals so we all dashed out: the livers and blubber from all three were brought back forthwith.
Am making arrangements to start back tomorrow, but at present it is overcast and the wind is coming up from the south.
Damn - the ice has all gone out to sea again.
The ponies were exercised but their coats are not so good as those back at Cape Evans - they are in need of fatty foods.
