28 April, 1911

Amazing aurora tonight. Spent the day at the ice caves on the glacier south of the Cape. Ponting took these lovely photographs with a long exposure.

That's Ponting in his studio in the Hut. Doing something important with chemicals.
Am completely shattered, all that clambering around in the cold. Just want to curl up with a good book in my bunk. Did we bring hot water bottles? Have to ask Birdie.

  1. ITEM: Hot-water bottles, 35. (One per member of Shore Party, plus two spares.)

    Sleep tight, sir!
