Cowart's Common Room
Pic of the Evening

Younger daughter has been sending me some fantastic pics of Antartica where it is apparently very cold. I mean cold as in inclement. It is always cold there but it is now very, very cold there. Even the penguins are shivering. And the fish are starting to knit woolen hats. These are frozen waves apparently. Flash frozen before they had time even to break. Uploaded ImageUploaded Image

Fennie's Avatar That isn't younger daughter, by the way - although you could, I suppose, pretend that it was and see what happened.

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar I hope, whoever it was, they kept their vest tucked in.

Blossomcottage's Avatar Amazing pictures, my lovely hubby would like to go to Antarctica as his Grandfather was part of the Shackleton expedition at the beginning of the last century, his Grandfather however went from Hobart through the Ross Sea, the intention was to meet up with Shackleton with supplies but he like Shackleton got stuck in the ice for 15 month. This means Hubby would like to go to Antarctica via the Ross which would put us on an Icebreaker in the Southern Ocean for 28 days!
I have told him I might consider the shorter route but 28 days he is on his own!!

Frances's Avatar Fennie, these photos show a place that to my eye just does not seem possible.

So. Wow!
