Friday afternoon saw another trip go out to Browning Peninsula, but this time there was some work involved! Saturday saw some light snow and a little bit of wind, but not enough to put off the work – installing a new solar panel for the VHF repeater.

Job done and we went off in search of some elephant seals. We smelled and heard them before we saw them – lots of belching and some pungent aromas!

That night we had a clear sky and had a great view of an aurora. It's a great spot to take in the dancing lights. Eventually we went off to bed and headed home the next morning.
