This week at Macquarie Island: 17 February 2012

Macquarie Island is the only Australian Antarctic station where it is necessary to do some gardening.  On Saturday the team of Belinda, Julia and Meg were out cutting the grass!  Ummm! What a wonderful smell!

Starting out - lots of grass to cut to get those paths clear
Starting out - a big job to tackle!
