Kazak Island and icebergs

This week at Davis: 27 January 2012

The start of this past week reminded us why Davis is often referred to as ‘The Riviera of the South’. We took advantage of the favourable weather conditions to do a few iceberg cruises after work and a science trip to Kazak Island.

Pleasantly the start of the boating season has coincided with the start of the ‘sunset season’, and whilst the sun is not setting for very long before rising again, we are getting some wonderful skies.
