3 April, 1911
Went out to Castle Rock with Taylor - no-one else came out, as it has been steadily getting windier and snowier and colder. Looks like the ice is thickening. The skuas are going.
I must say, I'm looking forward to getting back to Cape Evans and all my books. I have quite exhausted the small library here. These darker evenings also make one pine for a little nip of whiskey to take the edge off. Am running low on tobacco for my pipe. We shall have to get a move on soon, because I shan't know what I shall do without the comfort of that, at least.
