Tradisie om die eerste keer die hare te laat groei, maar ek nou moeg vir die boskasie storie en die jaar hou ek baard lank maar hare netjies en kort soos ek daarvan hou  :thumleft:

I am using a Nikon 3100. Just a basic Slr but seems I got the settings now more or less under control

I have been doing a bit of penguin counting, assisted the fieldworkers as we always did on Marion with either seal weighing, penguin weigh and counting and even went through penguin diet samples.

Here are some pictures:

Must say tumble down beach is one of the most beautiful I have ever set on. You got to be physically strong enough to go down there in order to be able to get back up again as you can only use your legs sort of to rest. About 30meters of rope climbing with your arms

Here is a few more pictures, even a Sea Elephant!

Ek stem 'Mev Vis Arend', ons moet dalk iemand kry on n bike in te edit onder daai Pikewyn  :imaposer:
Die Pikewyne lyk so quite  cute soos teddy beere, maar hulle is lekker geniepsig en kan mens soms stukkend byt!  :o

PS: Edit misspell  :)

Yes it is quite an interesting place! Perlemoen I'm sure must be here, although we are not allowed to dive anymore so researchers will eventually over a period of time make more discoveries as there has been a French team of divers here some recent years back and they have discovered a lot of unnamed species..... This is like virgin waters and only the ship by name the 'Edinburgh is allowed to fish here 3 x a year for crayfish and line fish and they mostly target 'bluefish' which is one hell of a bonus to catch from the shore. I still need mine and I will keep trying! Still a bit too much work now and I haven't spent nearly as much time as I would have wanted fishing, but soon I trust that will change.

We had our first Birthday for the year and I had to cater for it. What we did in the beginning of the expedition was to put all the names in a hat and to draw one; You are then responsible to cater, to make a present etc. That includes the cake and the theme! Great fun and high spirits!

You have had enough jollying, fishing and eating Kreef.  How about some more pictures and some more details/info on the island.   :pot:

Rodlau you have made a good point  :thumleft: I will update as soon as I had some time again to go out with the field workers on a trip. I have been rather busy with reports and had to do some fault finding on one of our generators as well as a cold room. Things can easily or rather quickly change here and some lazy days can quickly be changed and filled with a bit of drama with regards to maintenance work.

We are also expecting the Edinburgh (ship) here in a weeks time with a few guests from Tristan da Cunha Island. They are comming to assist us with the satellite communication system, and to also do a bit of their own research and also delivering some parts for us so that we can get that generator up and running again. We only have 3 generators, 2 x 120kva and 1 x 150kva backup unit. Not good if you need to make use of a backup unit so early into the expedition but we will get it sorted.

Once the 'dust settles' I will update again with a bit more info on the island and nice 'fresh' photos!  :)

Die strandjie is 'n wonderlike plek. Ek is saam met Marthan Bester daar af om genetiese materiaal van robbe te kry. 'n Sirkeltjie se vel en vleis uit die voorfin se sagte vleisies... Moet net nie dat hulle jou raakhap terwyl jy hulle aan die stert laat hang nie - hou hulle maar ver van die lyf af☺.
Gelukkig is die graspolle stewig geanker - jy kan maar trap en vashou - hulle gaan nerens nie.
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.
