9 June, 1911

The moonlight was so bright last night during a break in the clouds that one might have imagined daylight had returned!

Otherwise the web of stratus which hangs over us thickens and thins, rises and falls with very bewildering uncertainty. We want theories for these mysterious weather conditions; meanwhile it is annoying to lose the advantages of moonlight.

Went for a ski and passed three seals sleeping on the ice. Two more were killed near the bergs.

Looks like a blizzard coming in.

It feels suddenly old to be 43. Everyone else seems so very young. What have I yet done? What will I have done a year from now?
