With our winter now at an end - one season finishes and another begins. Spring, a season of new excitement as we eagerly await the return of all our lost creatures. Already there has been speculation and queries as to the return of seals, these random big blobs appearing on the sea ice and disappearing in the blink of an eye. With the possible arrival of seals (I have yet to confirm) this can only mean one thing, the imminent return of the masses of Adelie penguins and coastal bird life. This will certainly lead to the return of more frequent adventures to isolated huts and exploration of our spectacular piece of Antarctica. Now out of the dark and the length of days seeming close to normal, we are able to soak up the sunsets and sunrises which are now feeling numbered.
