Friday 8 February 2008-9 deg CBrunt Ice Shelf This is my first picture of the Brunt Ice Shelf. It's more stunning (and colder) than anywhere else so far. The Shackleton is currently positioning herself to tie up at creek 4. After making sure the sea ice is firm, we will then start to disembark. Currently it is 6 am (9GMT). We should be on the ice shelf by 12 noon (3 GMT). Will keep you posted. (ps I hope the natives are friendly).
