‘Ello Mate.

The view at the last rock collection site.

The day started with the last of the rock collecting. After lunch we
enjoyed a visit with our friends from across the big pond. The Brits at
Rothera Base had agreed to collect some holothurians for us during their
diving ops, so we swung by to pick them up. They were especially kind to
invite everyone ashore for a tour of their labs and a couple hours of R&R.
A fun time was had by all. Brian showed off his drumming abilities in
the lounge where the Antarctic concert for Live Earth was recorded. Other
folks enjoyed a game of soccer and some Frisbee.

Touring Rothera.

Right now we are headed back to our third station to finish our coring.
During the transit we will process the tracer experiments from the fifth
station and start more feeding experiments with the animals from Rothera.
